Abstract: The article focuses on the comparative analysis of the causative factors influencing the students’ passivity in 2005 and 2017 as well as on classwork methods stimulating their activity. The analysis was based on the results obtained in 2005 and 2017. The results showed that the main reasons of the students’ passivity in 2005 during their English classes was their habit to be silent acquired in the high school as well as their unwillingness to show emotions (female approach) and laziness (male approach). In 2017 the students were still unwilling to show their emotions (both female and male approach) and laziness (male approach). In 2005 the active students pointed out discussion as the most acceptable method to acquire competence in the English as the second language, whereas the passive students preferred teamwork to any other classroom activity. Both target groups emphasized the importance of good psychological climate during the classes. In 2017 discussion was found to be the most acceptable method to acquire competence and better speaking skills for the both active students and passive students, while the latter indicated that the psychological climate during the classes as exceptionally important helping them to cope with the stress and language barrier. The obtained results also showed that the students in 2017 were more conscious of the importance of being active during the classes
