When we teach a new language the material available in class is very important to have a successful lesson. There should always be a balance between the use of crative material such as flash-cards, games ecc and the classical source such as the coursebooks widely used at international level.Authentic material also is a tool that could help students at higher levels.The last unit reflects the most common problems in the classroom depending on their size, motivation and English fluency. It gives vast information about how to cope with these problems in order to turn them into advantages and thus include all students equally in the studying process.
