Authentic materials:
Sometimes called “authentic” or “contextualized”, real-life materials are those that a student encounters in everyday life but that weren’t created for educational purposes. They include newspapers, magazines, and Web sites, as well as driver’s manuals, utility bills, pill bottles, and clothing labels.

Sources of Authentic materials:
Authentic materials can be found in newspapers, menus, magazines, the Internet, TV programs, movies, CDs, songs, brochures, comics, literature (novels, poems and short stories), catalogues, leaflets, tickets, postcards, bills, receipts, wrappings, recipes, business cards, labels, stamps, etc.

How to get authentic materials:
We can obtain authentic materials from the following sources: * The Internet
* Library
* A foreign country which is an English speaking country.

Created materials:
Created materials are made according to the needs of the students. They either supplement course books or replace sections that are not suitable for the class. Created materials can, unlike authentic materials, be graded to the level of the students. However, created materials are not real and may not be interesting. They do not provide the opportunity to gain real information and know what is going on in the world around them. They do not reflect the changes in language use and do not give the learner the proof that the language is real.
