The authentic text becomes a valuable didactic tool in the interconnected development of linguistic, pragmatic, cultural and sociocultural competences at students while learning a foreign language. The formative qualities of the authentic text depend mostly on the way these sources are selected. The formative value of authentic texts is increased and a dynamic of students’ competences can be seen in case when their selection is done according to linguistic and psycho-didactic principles; building an adequate methodology of the learning experience. Key factors that influence the dynamics of students’ competences in learning a foreign language are motivation, the real context of the communicative environment in the target language and students` needs.
