Advice on Selecting Materials

Nowadays, there is a wide variety of materials available for learning languages. Modern materials and software such as  CD ROMs, DVDs, cassettes, and videos, provide colour, variety and sources of authentic input (examples of real language used by native speakers).  Traditional materials are mainly text-based and tend to focus more on reading and writing skills e.g. course books, work books, text books, graded readers, and grammar exercises - these can also be very useful.  All these materials are designed for language learners, but we should not forget that there is a huge amount of authentic material designed for native speakers which can be used for advanced learners, and adapted for those who are less proficient: books, magazines, newspapers, games, music, films, radio, and tv.

When selecting materials for language learning you should try to find those that match your:

  • language level e.g. advanced level
  • age group e.g. adult 
  • reason for learning the language e.g. to improve your letter writing ability
  • preferred approach e.g. like to do repetitive exercises
  • mode of learning e.g. self-study
  • price range e.g. £15 to £25
  • equipment available e.g. using Windows 95+

Look for attractive materials, which you find interesting, colourful and useful.  They should be clearly laid out and well-structured.  Borrow materials from a friend or a library first, if you can, to make sure that you can get on with them.  You can also ask your teacher or fill in a short online form to use our advisory service.

You can also consult the CILT resources library . Another possibility is the Hull CALL software database.
