The pace of development of our society is increasing in various spheres of human activity in connection with the process of globalization. Therefore, cross-cultural interactions are reaching a new level in the economic, political and educational spheres. Today, a person should have the ability to be tolerant of other people and events in the world, as well as to know a foreign language due to the process of globalization. Thus, the question of what tolerance is and how to develop it has been studied by many scientists since ancient times. However, they did not use the cross-cultural approach in their investigations. It is explored in this research. The aim of this study is to identify the most appropriate technique to developing tolerance when teaching a foreign language. For this purpose, the literature about the origin of the definition of tolerance has been studied and analyzed, approaches to the development of tolerance have been considered, a qualitative and quantitative analysis of textbooks have been made, and the technology for the development of tolerance has been determined. The results of the study can be used in the development of new curricula for the development of tolerance in teaching a foreign language at school.
