The problem of the relationship between foreign language teaching and the comparison of languages, contrastive linguistic studies in particular, is treated in the beginning. Thus, a critical assessment of the positive achievements of contrastive linguistics is given and an attempt is made at studying the reasons for the insufficient application of contrastive linguistics to foreign language teaching. Problems of typological contrastive studies and of contrastive analyses on the basis of translation texts are considered at the end of the article.
