Using Coursebooks for Teaching English as a Foreign Language in Primary School: Take it or Leave it

Description of Research Project: While the quality of EFL coursebooks has improved dramatically in recent years, the process of selecting an appropriate coursebook has not become any easier for most teachers. The rich palette of coursebooks makes their careful selection, adaptation and supplementation more essential. Although coursebooks provide English teachers with several advantages in the chlassroom, such as providing guidelines, system, security, the majority of primary school English teachers still prefers teaching by means of self-designed materials instead of coursebooks. Bearing in mind that preparing personal teaching materials for primary school context is quite time-consuming, the teachers' arguments for their choice must be explored to optimize English language teaching.
