Student psychological adaptation in foreign higher schools is regarded as an extreme spontaneous situation with negative aftereffects like illness, behaviour deviation, lower educational quality or break in educational process. Here appears a necessity to study and optimize the process of adaptation in foreign language environment by raising the student preparedness for adaptation. During the adaptation, unlike the emigrants, students have to realize their communicative potential as a characteristic of their temporary business communication and joint educational activity. Communicative potential is determined by the structure and level of group reflection development. Methodology of raising the resource of student adaptation was developed.
