Albanian Case: English Textbook Evaluation in High Schools as Part of the English Curriculum

Emilda Roseni

Abstract


The aim of this paper is to evaluate the two English language textbooks (from different publishing houses - levels 2, 3, 4) currently used at high schools in Albania from the high school English teachers’ point of view. For this purpose, a 38-item questionnaire was developed about the five sections of the textbooks (vocabulary, reading, grammar, language functions, and pronunciation practice) and their practical concerns. Thirty public high school teachers, out of forty-four that teach English in the city of Ebasan, with more than five years of teaching experience were asked to reflect on the questions by checking one of the four options included. The results indicated that the textbooks are not acceptable from the teachers’ point of view considering their five sections and their practical concerns.
