Abstract

The Kazakh language is the state language of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Being in colonization for a long time Kazakhstani
people had no need and chance to use the Kazakh language freely. With the independence proclaimed the opportunity to
use the Kazakh language has increased: from primary schools to the universities. In the frame of European language teaching
norms, special standards were developed to teach the Kazakh language in the functional-communicative direction. Its basics
cover the national and cognitive directions. In this presentation the author shares the ideas of teaching national -cultural
lexis, as well as using the onym units at the lessons. Proper names play a significant role in the Kazakh culture and the
national mentality. They describe the long history of the Kazakh people through the centuries. The article considers
languages’ description and importance of teaching them.
