  15. 15. AUTHENTIC MATERIALS ARE... • those designed for native speakers. They are real text designed not for language students, but for the speakers of the language in question. (Nunan) • stretches of real language, produced by a real speaker or writer for a real audience and designed to carry a real message. (Harmer) • “appropriate” and “quality” in terms of goals, objectives, learner needs and interest and “natural” in terms of real life and meaningful communication. (Rogers)

  19. 19. ACTFL.ORG GUIDELINES EXAMPLE: Students listen to authentic audio clips featuring native speakers describing an event, and can match the oral description to a picture, or put pictures in the order of the sequence of events as described. EXAMPLE: Students read several authentic menus and identify which would be appropriate for different people based on likes/dislikes and special dietary needs. EXAMPLE: Students browse the website of a current popular magazine in a target language country.They identify the emotions of the people in the photo based on their interpretation of visual and linguistic cues and then discuss their findings with their classmates.

  23. 23. HOW THE AP EXAM HAS CHANGED Students will work with a greater variety of authentic materials, both print and audio, reflecting the linguistic and cultural diversity of the French-speaking world. Literary and journalistic texts but also announcements, advertisements, letters, maps and tables. Scripted dialogues but also radio interviews, podcasts, public service announcements, brief presentations. Criteria for selection are comprehensibility (accent, pace, minimal background noise/overlap) and relevance to a course theme and to a topic that could interest students. Materials will be reasonably chosen, but will also reflect a range of cultural perspectives and linguistic features.
