    Re: Authentic Material

    What do you mean by "authentic material" and what prompted you to ask this question?

    Re: Authentic Material

    Authentic material are the materials made for native speakers. It can be used by English language teachers to teach real life language to L2 learners e.g. Newspaper, Menu, ATM, Videos, Songs etc. I am TEFL student and I have been asked this question for my assignment.

    If it's for an assignment, I'm afraid we can't help you. Your course tutor wants to know your ideas, not ours.

    Re: Authentic Material

    Its not about idea's nor my assignment is based on creativity. It is a part of question. We have to define authentic material and then tell its uses. I am not clear with the word 'uses'.

    I have to cope with all skills but just for getting clarity of concept I asked about one skill. I can do rest on my own.

    Review dictionary definitions of the noun use and see if the phrase becomes clearer.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Authentic Material

    You specifically asked us "What are the different uses of authentic material for reading skill?" You did not tell us you had an assignment and you didn't understand the word "uses" in that assignment title. Had anyone actually answered the question in post #1, we would basically have done your assignment for you.

    If your English is good enough to be on a TEFL course, it's good enough to work out what "uses" means in the title.
