The article presents the experience of working with children having a high level of educational needs in learning foreign languages using the network mode of collaboration between higher educational institutions and general educational institutions. The purpose of research is to study the possible forms of work with children, who have a more rapid academic response, high sensitivity to new information, dominant cognitive needs for the implementation of principles of practice-based learning. It analyzes the advantages of network school classes for teachers, high school students and high school instructors; they include the possibility to use of split-level tasks, to individualize and differentiate instruction, to organize effective practice of foreign language communication, to receive individual information support and assistance to meet one`s own educational needs. Particular attention is given to such possibility of the school network as strengthening of scientific and methodological support of research work of school students. We have investigated the psychological benefits of this approach to the organization of work with children with special educational needs, such as reflection and the experience of “useful dialogue”. The authors have analyzed the advantages of working with children for a teacher, e. g., the use of tasks of high level of complexity and the use of alternative techniques and learning technologies. The article presents the possible formats of summarizing the re-sults of studies in such groups, including a number of methods that should be used when working in this format with this category of students: the method of comparison, the method of design concepts, the method of devising, the method of errors, and a technique of “press conference”, especially useful for the preparation for the oral part of the exam in a foreign language. These are methods that are rarely used in school, but they are ideal for working in such small groups.
