The use of course books and created materials contrasts with authentic materials which are designed for native speakers. Both have pros and cons which are worth much consideration. Although authentic materials are ideal for highly advanced learners, they can be very confusing to beginners in the language who might do better with created materials like course books. Course books, however, can become predictable and boring when used to the letter. They also put the teacher at risk of losing their autonomy of the class to the course book. Both types of materials, however, are useful and have their place in the world of teaching.
