Abstract

The purpose of this report lies in identifying how teaching through authentic material to intermediate learners can be made more effective and primarily learners' views of the use of authentic material in language learning. The subject at hand is English Language and while teaching English may span several dimensions of language learning such as grammar, vocabulary, comprehension, literature, and so forth, the main focus will be on comprehending the wider array of authenticity for language teaching, why it may or may not be useful and what methodologies can be relied on to improve the learning experience for the learners. This paper reports the findings of a descriptive survey focused on the perspectives of pre-intermediate level students at the British Council across the Middle East on the use of authentic material in language learning.
