The article attempts to identify and analyze the main approaches to the methodological design of a modern foreign language textbook. The data collected by the survey of respondents from among students of various fields of training allowed the authors to identify ten main aspects that are necessary for designing a high-quality modern textbook which meets the requirements of the educational standard and is positively accepted by students as a source of reliable knowledge. The authors pay special attention to the personal and professional qualities of a teacher, especially if he is the author of the textbook with which he works. In conclusion, the authors express the great hope that the promotion of the creation of high-quality educational content will change the modern attitude to the role of a foreign language and make its studying not only mandatory, but also exciting.
