Abstract


In EFL settings, in mastering English Language students do not merely study on rule of the language but more on communicative purposes. So, they need more practices using English in the classroom and a teacher has to lead students to always practice English. From the four competences, i.e. linguistic, sociolinguistic, discourse, and strategic competences, they must be integrated to lead students achieve the communicative competence. Authentic materials are not created specifically to be used in the classroom and the use of authentic materials that can be obtained from the materials in surrounding daily life can reinforce the direct relationship between the language classroom and the outside world for the students. It helps students involve in the real language as long as teachers provide them with educational support.
