Abstract

The process of learning a second language involves many steps as elements to be consummated. Teachers, resources, and materials are vital to develop this process of reaching a desired level in students. Regarding to material, there have been many studies or arguments that support or encourage the use of them when teaching-learning a second language. The University of El Salvador offers the opportunity to study a second language, and even though the access to technology gives a wide variety of materials and resources, there is still a high level presence of text book material or not authentic material inside the classroom. Despite this fact, many students reach an acceptable level of English at the end of the career; however, theory proposes that results might be considerably different if students were exposed to authentic material in longer periods or at least in more often opportunities. Concerning to one of the most difficult skill, which is listening, they might increase their proficiency level. This research was carried out with the purpose of identifying the relation that exists between the exposure to authentic materials and the Listening proficiency level. The Intensive Intermediate English II students at Foreign Language Department were taken as population for this research. This project presents the results obtained that demonstrate the level of influence that authentic material has in the process of teaching-learning as a second language.
