This article is devoted to the phenomenon of multimedia cultural-linguistic environment, as a factor of successful mastering of foreign language. The issues of creation of foreign communicative space, based on Internet resources, are considered in the article. The examples of information resources, with the help of which German-speaking cultural-linguistic environment can be created, are given in the work.

The article analyzes the advantages of staying in multimedia cultural-linguistic environment. These are the use of several channels of socio-cultural information in the process of training, and the possibility of using various types of information (texts, audio and video materials of all styles and genres). It should be noted, that students independently immerse themselves in the modeled foreign reality. Due to this, they can implement metacognitive strategies in learning process. The possibilities of listening and watching the material at any time repeatedly, as well as the combination with other activities, are undeniable advantages of staying in the environment. This environment has a positive impact on the development of all types of speech activity. There are the incidental memorization of grammatical constructions, digestion of pronunciation norms, consolidation of lexical material, and contextual semantization of vocabulary. The article emphasizes the importance of creation the methodology for working with foreign-language media, based on the development of students’ critical thinking, the ability to compare the positions of the parties, and proving of their own point of view. The authors conclude that multimedia environment can be considered as a factor, significantly increasing the effectiveness of learning the language and culture.
