Often on Pinterest I'll run across a blog post from someone teaching their kids German whether in their freetime or homeschool, and they'll post a picture of their German learning materials. They use anything and everything including:
- blog posts
- library books
- travel guides
- grammar guides
- kids books
and anything else they can get their hands on. These have specific value as they are authentic materials. And authentic materials are awesome, because we want to communicate with people in another language--authentically! And genuinely!
What's the problem then?
To answer this question, I'm going to ask you a question: who are these materials written for?
