Authentic materials are used by native speakers of a language for actual communication. Authentic materials are good tools for language teaching and learning because they are: * Interesting. * They use real language. * They can be chosen for individual interests. * They illustrate accurate use of language in the target culture. * And, they help students learn how to get as much information as they can, even if they can't understand everything, or even very much.
An innovative offering from the Office of English Language Programs, Shaping the Way We Teach English, is a 14-module teacher training video series developed and produced in cooperation with the University of Oregon.
