The article is devoted to the actual problem of the modern linguistics – study of the peculiarities of perception and organization of language material by bilinguals. The aim of the investigation is to classify and describe speech strategies of communicators in the context of natural and artificial bilingual situation. The authors analyze speech and behavioral strategies of bilinguals, which they choose in this or that language or definite language units to describe certain situations and use of expressions according to the norms of a language and also conscious and unconscious use of code switching. The following methods of investigation were used in the article: observation, generalization, semantic and pragmatic interpretation that constitute a part of descriptive and analytical method. The results of the classification and description of speech strategies of communicators confirm that recording of bilinguals’ language behavior is of a great interest for the modern language paradigm as it fully reflects the linguistic reality in natural and artificial bilingualism. Research perspectives lie in the further investigation of speech behavior of communicators of different ages and ethnic groups in various spheres: business, economy etc. and in polylingual community as well.
