Abstract

This study is an attempt to investigate the effectiveness of integrating authentic materials into English as a foreign language (EFL) classes to improve the students’ listening skills. Authentic materials are derived from real-life sources such as newspapers, podcasts, films and videos offer learners exposures to natural language use and cultural context. A questionnaire is administered to 40 middle school teachers to optimize the use of authentic materials in EFL classrooms. The findings revealed that incorporating authentic materials can significantly improve students’ listening proficiency and foster a deeper understanding of a language.
