Hi, everyone!
Authentic matierials are highly recommended in the listening classroom especially under the communicative language teaching principles. Vedio activities like watching the movie and listening to the song are welcomed by the students. But authentic materials like these are usually not easy for learners to understand.
Question So I'm looking for the answers of how to make use of authentic materials in the listening classroom. Thank you very much!

Hi dear James,
Thank you very much for your reply! The website is really a great information resource fot Enghlish language teaching!
I've got a hint from your website about what type of authentic materials are appropriate for the selection in the classroom. The detailed teaching steps and specific activities are very helpful for new teachers like me.
The list of new words, main charaters and plot summary gives a teacher better control of the difficulty level of a movie.
Thank you again for your great resource, and I expect for more good websites from you and other good friends! Very Happy
Best wishes for you from Beijing, China!
Lydia
