This article suggests some possibilities of using online media, more
specifically messaging chats as sources for collecting examples of language
use in an informal communicative context. These examples will later be used
as authentic didactic materials in the Portuguese as a foreign language class.
The article explores the possibilities, advantages and difficulties of collecting
and using these materials, exemplifying through the work already done and
experimented with Portuguese level A2/ B1 students at Johannes Gutenberg-
Universität in Mainz, Germany.
