Abstract


Nowadays, English has acquired the status of an international language. It has become an integral part of modern culture, economics, politics, sport, education, art, tourism, science and other fields. It should be noted, that oral and written communication in English became a reality and a necessity: people often encounter TV broadcasting, simple instructions for use in English, as well as communication with foreigners, both in life and on the Internet. Mastering communicative competence in English, not being in the country of the language being studied, is a very difficult matter. Therefore, an important task of the teacher is to create real and imagined situations of communication in the classroom of a foreign language, using different methods and techniques of work (role-plays, discussions, creative projects, and others). Equally important is the task of involving pupils in the cultural values of the people - the native speaker. For these purposes, the use of authentic materials (drawings, texts, sound recordings, etc.) is of great importance. In this paper, there were studied the innovative methods of teaching English language and supplementary materials, which are mostly used by teachers. By means of  a questionnaire for both, teachers and pupils, it was possible to get to know which materials are mostly used at English classes and why, and also, to conclude why this or that supplementary material is effective or ineffective.

Keywords: supplementary materials, visualization, approaches, effectiveness, teaching process, methods and techniques.
