It is designed following the constructivist approach to language teaching that permits students to acquire involuntarily target language communicative skills through participation in professional activities/communication conducted in English and modeled in the classroom. The peculiar structure of the textbook and its thematic units has been developed to suit the requirements of the constructivist approach. Seven constructivist principles following which the textbook is designed have been elaborated. Experiential learning activities are introduced to practically implement the constructivist approach in classroom practice. They comprise: continuous simulation, project work, case studies, discussions; searching for, listening to and reading authentic professional printed and electronic information required for doing creative tasks; writing different professional documents. Scientific novelty: The features of the textbook discussed in the article make it scientifically innovative in what concerns teaching English for professional purposes. The research results make an innovative contribution to the theoretical development of the constructivist approach in language teaching. Practical significance: The results of the study open new ways of improving teaching English for professional purposes and they constitute the first practical development of the constructivist approach in teaching English to future managers of tourism.
