The present paper consists of two main parts; the theoretical aspect of the study which includes two chapters where we present a historical overview of the authentic materials in the first chapter, while the second chapter examines the nature of listening skill, it also introduces at the end the listening activities with authentic materials. The second part is devoted to the practical aspect of the study; in this part, we put the theory into practice in a form of fieldwork. In an attempt to investigate these facts, a descriptive method has been undertaken and the data were been gathered through three tools; the questionnaire which were administered to (40) second year students at Biskra University, teachers‟ interview that conducts (5) teachers from the current university and the third tool is classroom observation.
