The goal of the research: to ascertain whether applying methods of acting helps develop 6-10 grade students’ second language skill abilities (speaking, listening, reading and writing). Tasks of the research: 1. finding out the relationship between the methods of acting and 6-10- grade students’ activity forms and explain these methods’ integration connection with the students’ activity (the German language) content. 2. to motivate the importance of the methods of acting while teaching foreign languages. 3. to define the efficiency of the applying of the methods of acting. 4. to discuss the opportunities of the applying of the methods of acting. Methods of the research: Theoretical - analysis of the scientific literature and educational supplies. Empirical - diagnostic tasks, experimental research, questionnaires, observation of the investigated. The hypothesis of the research: It is believed that skills of the second language are successfully developed if language activity forms in the teaching process (speaking, listening, reading and writing) are constantly connected with the elements of acting.
The research took place at Vilnius secondary school in 6-10 grade students groups of the German language in September-February, 2007-2008. The number of the investigated was 38 students.

Applying the methods of acting can seek for better results. Students are not only involved in the material of the subject but also master it better. 3. Applying of the methods of acting not only helps develop students’ language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) but also stimulates students’ motivation to study, helps get rid of stress, stimulates creativity, gives an impact of self-confidence, develops thinking and imagination. 4. Teaching methods of acting are used together with the traditional methods of teaching, which should take much more important place in teaching a foreign language.
