Title: You are what you say

Abstract: People get interested in studying English as a second language for many reasons, such as: because they want to broaden their knowledge, because their job requires it, to satisfy the wish of traveling abroad, or even because they like it. But these people have the same goal: being able to communicate. When they start to use the material in a classroom, if they do not feel comfortable with the material, it might be because they do not have enough communication, interaction being proposed and the material does not relate with students real lives. It may also, be focused on form, rather than offering the chance of working on meaning. Combined, these are factors which may prevent students from getting excited to study English. They can even give up learning English. They want to talk, give their opinions, express their thoughts and beliefs. Authentic material must be used on a communicative and critical perspective in order to improve their learning process. With this material teachers can encourage students to interact and be closer to native speakers language.
