Educators are generally aware of the importance of using authentic texts reflecting real-world situations in the language classroom. Tarone & Swain (1995) argue that contextualized materials that reflect nonacademic settings are highly beneficial in the language classroom and increase student proficiency.


In the last few decades the shift from a teacher- to a student-centered classroom has increased the overall communicative competence of students studying a second language (L2). Educators now, more than ever, strive to create lively classes based on a communicative curriculum. Savignon (2002) believes that “a truly communicative curriculum is made up of five categories: language analysis, language for a purpose, personal second language use, second language use outside the classroom, and theater arts”.
