We summarise practical considerations for performing highly accurate terahertz spectroscopy measurements of amorphous systems. We also outline possible perspectives for a further development of terahertz spectroscopy and its applications. This includes a deeper understanding of terahertz dynamics of amorphous systems and the development of a theory for a comparison of terahertz spectra to the results commonly obtained from well established scattering experiments.
