The integration of Ukraine into the world educational and scientific space makes it urgent to grant English the status of the language of teaching disciplines of preparation programs for domestic university students. Ukrainian students of technical universities often express their desire to receive full or partial education in English. In the case of the choice of mathematics as a part of a separate set of disciplines for studying in English, due to the need to use the mathematical apparatus in the Ukrainian-language presentation of a number of general technical and professional courses, the problem of bilingual mathematical preparation of students arises. The article is devoted to the solution of this problem on the basis of the communicative approach. The well-known interpretations of the concepts of linguistic interference, bilingualism are analyzed. The author's definition of bilingual education is introduced. Based on the results of known studies of bilingual learning in the context of modern concepts of education, the presented models are analyzed from the standpoint of compliance with three consecutive stages of formation of artificial bilingualism. Based on the analysis, the formation of English mathematical thinking is proposed as a linguodidactic basis for the transition to the highest stage of bilingual mathematical preparation of students - balanced bilingualism. The implementation of the process of forming English-language mathematical thinking is provided on the basis of generalized English-language standards of definitions, formulations and proofs of theorems and statements, as well as generalized schemes for solving practical problems.
