Summary/Abstract: This paper examines materials development as a specific field of study in foreign language teaching. Materials development includes developing and evaluating materials by studying on the principles and procedures of language teaching design. Materials include anything which can be used to facilitate the learning of a language. They can be linguistic, visual, auditory or kinesthetic, and they can be presented in print, through live performance or display, or on cassette, CD-ROM. Materials development which uses the principles of Second Language Acquisition Research, requires a systematic process. During this process teachers and learners can develop materials as well as professional material writers. Materials adaptation and materials evaluation are the basic fields of the materials development study.
