Abstract

This paper is an attempt to highlight the importance of using Media Sources and authentic materials in the ESL classrooms. These teaching materials, if they are used judiciously, will become useful teaching aids for developing language competency among the learners of English as a second language at various levels. The paper, however, focuses particularly on the use of three types of authentic materials which are available plenty in Indian Society – namely, pamphlets, brochures, itineraries, timetables, magazines and newspapers. This paper also briefly explains the benefits, the selection of authentic materials and the approach for language teaching.
