Annotation: The article discusses the implementation of exercises adopted from acting, screenwriting, poetry, music, and drawing teaching to develop various foreign language skills. Taking into consideration the beneficial impact of poly-artistic approach to organizing the education process, the author attempts to apply tasks and techniques for professional creators training to ensure better learning outcomes, especially in terms of improvised speaking and writing. The integration of the arts in liason with the whole language approach creates an adequate basis for reaching the highest stage of a foreign language study – independent speaking improvisation for successful communication in any situation. The polyphony of images is a conducive atmosphere for forming the secondary linguistic identity of any learner. The hierarchy of the polyartistic experience by B.P. Jusov served the foundation for organizing a set of foreign language classes. The results have shown that shifting from the authoritative instruction in the EFL classroom to the polyphonic co-creation facilitates linguistic abilities of beginners and associative thinking of advanced learners regardless of their majors.
Keywords: integration, poly-artistic approach, class directing, foreign language, productive and receptive skills.
