Abstract: The aim of the paper is to prove the relevance and appropriateness of ESP for students studying Linguistics in tertiary education, design possible formats of its implementation and check its effectiveness by means of experiment. In the course of the research the experience and practice of leading universities of Great Britain, the USA, Canada and France have been analyzed, peculiarities and specificity of Applied Linguistics curriculum have been studied and the place of ESP in educational process has been defined. In the result of the conducted analysis a completely new approach to ESP in Applied Linguistics curriculum has been suggested. It has been defined that ESP course for linguists must be focused on the tasks corresponding to the types of professional tasks that linguists may perform in their future professional life. The idea of developing an ESP revision course has been outlined. Tasks within it are supposed to cover the main skills of professional linguists – doing research in linguistics, doing linguistic analysis of texts, processing information using IT and working with machine translation; translating and interpreting; editing and proofreading. 20 Bachelor’s degree students of Khmelnytskyi National University (Ukraine) studying linguistics professionally in Applied Linguistics specialty took part in this research. The experiment took place in 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 academic years. The results of the experiment indicated significant dynamics in increase of students’ academic performance (proficiency) in the experimental group. During the experiment, the students of the experimental group significantly improved their knowledge and developed ESP skills. At the beginning of the experiment only 5 students (17 %) had a high level of professional knowledge and skills whereas at the end of the experiment the number of students reached 6 (50 %). The originality and the value of the study lies in a new approach to ESP for future linguists (branch that has never been included to the list of ESL branches before). The value of the ESP revision course has not only been substantiated but demonstrated on the basis of designed lessons and samples of tasks that can be included into them.
