Language learning materials support the students’ learning of the second language. This study aimed to determine the Nueva Ecija University of Science and Technology-San Isidro Campus (NEUST-SIC) students’ feedback about the learning materials used by their teachers. Participants of this study were fifty-five junior high school students enrolled during the SY 2016-2017. The researcher employed the descriptive method to determine the students’ feedback about their language teachers’ different language learning materials used in the classroom. The data analysis used Frequencies and Weighted Mean. The study’s findings revealed that respondents strongly agree (Mean 3.31) that the reference materials provide information about English culture. The data also revealed that the respondents agree that the lessons are comprehensively discussed and easy to understand (Mean 2.82). Also, the respondents agree that the topics are relevant and useful (Mean 2.94), help improve their macro skills (Mean 2.98), and they experience using English in real-life scenarios (Mean 3.18). They also agree that their language learning materials improve their English grammar knowledge (Mean 3.09) and describe real-life situations where possible ( Mean 3.09). Lastly, the respondents agree that their teachers use authentic materials for more effective learning (Mean 3.18). Based on the findings, it was concluded that the language learning materials utilized by language teachers in NEUST-SIC adhere to the principles of language learning materials development. Teachers execute the lessons using different teaching methods that help develop students’ macro skills.
