In this study it is aimed to debate whether newspaper articles can be used as speaking materials in foreign language courses as they include most actual and living language patterns by all means. A quasi-experimental study has been carried out at Vocational School of Tourism and Hotel Services of Erzincan University. Thirty-eight preparatory students took part in the study. Speaking courses have been constructed to include newspaper articles. The study has provided evidence to prove the hypothesis: "Language should be taught by original materials and spoken language is best acquired when it is obtained from actual and authentic sources."
