Modern engineers' working with professional literature in foreign languages has become an essential part of their job duties. The necessity of dealing with a professional discourse allows marking out special discursive-creative abilities which are a communicative tool of the effective speech interaction. It aims at revealing implicit information of professional importance. In the present study, the authors identify discursive-creative abilities as abilities to arrange the information and to analyze the relations between its elements, to master the implicit knowledge and then to find innovative decisions. The solving of the problem of developing student's discursive-creative abilities specifies an important role of cognitive problems in the process of dealing with scientific discourse encouraging making up personality being ready for the future professional activity. Communicative-cognitive problems answer to this purpose. They are aimed at perception, understanding and creating discourse as the processes mentioned above require such mental operations as analysis, synthesis, comparison, generalization, specification, abstracting in the process of information decoding, deverbalization and explication that result in thinking flexibility, breadth, fluency and originality and lead to its creativity. The theoretical basis allows us to define communicative-cognitive tasks, the purpose of which is to clarify the information in the scientific discourse and to develop professional skills and ways of handling with text data, to express the subject communicative need to influence a partner as the result of problem situation comprehension. It was proved that the use of role play technology is defined by its orientation to the understanding of professional information represented in the scientific discourse, realization of the communicative purpose of the professional intercourse and means of presenting the information in the appropriate form according to the communicative purpose given.
