Using Authentic Materials in the Classroom
Today, one of the biggest concerns for teachers of English is to prepare learners for real life situations. That involves creating activities that expose students to real English and enable them to communicate with the outside world. One effective way to do so is to plan learning activities which feature authentic materials. Authentic materials will not only expose students to rich language input, but also bring them closer to the target culture. As a result, students will have a sense that they are learning the real language and be able to cope with genuine interaction. This makes the learning process more enjoyable and motivating.
