(გლობალური საკითხები და თანამედროვე გამოწვევები განათლებაში)
Introduction and aim: The aim of the paper is to investigate the phenomenon of teaching host country language to Erasmus students, to show the ways of including social media in language teaching. The paper focuses on a specific group of students, namely, Erasmus+ exchange students visiting Krosno State College, and a specific course offered as an option for these foreign students: Polish as a Second Language course. The course is 30 hours long and has been designed as a practical introduction to Polish language. It also includes a fair amount of cultural content. Erasmus+ students at Krosno State College come mainly from Turkey, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Greece and Hungary. Most students who decide to participate in exchange programmes such as Erasmus+ use social media on a daily basis both to communicate with their friends and family at home, and to form a network of friends in their host country. Integrating social media into the language course has resulted in a number of improvements regarding acquisition of language as well as increasing socio-cultural awareness. In this study, I have attempted to describe my own experiences in using social media as a teaching tool while comparing and contrasting this individual approach with studies conducted by methodology experts. The main objective of the paper is to investigate the extent to which social media can or should be used in the classroom and to look at both the opportunities they open up for students and the risks that they may entail.
The paper looks at general assumptions of PSL teaching methodology in the context of Erasmus PSL courses at Krosno State College and tries to establish a consistent strategy for course content selection and student evaluation. The paper also considers intercultural factor in content selection, suggests teaching strategies and proposes modern technologies to supplement the course.

Results and implications: The paper provides an outline characteristics of host language courses for Erasmus understood as a separate and specific sub-type within the L2 teaching methodology and suggests teaching/learning strategies that may work best in host language courses for Erasmus students (based on PSL courses at Krosno State College).
Conclusion: The paper proposes a consistent strategy for selecting course material and suggests best teaching methods and techniques for standard host language courses (30 hours) at colleges/universities.

Teaching students to make an independent newspaper prepares them for their future jobs. It is experience for them in a “sheltered” environment which presents a huge challenge to make a student view a student newspaper as professional.

Referring a variety of material (articles, practical lessons and scientific researches from the Internet and journals helped us to get to know world-wide steps for creating newspapers- the planning a newspaper, writing news, feature stories, opinions and classified Ads. The teachers engaged in this sphere will have useful information about some ways that are so necessary to enable students to know surroundings (their friends, teachers, campus, city) much better, to motivate their students to write better and build their confidence to cope with the tasks independently to reach the goal.
