Qs: Use of Course Books Globally

Editor for this issue: Zac Smith <zaclinguistlist.org>


We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

I'm writing a paper with a colleague about the treatment of grammar in
course books. We'd like to provide information on how widespread
course books are in second/foreign language classrooms. Does anyone
have any information on this? Thank you in advance for any help. (Our
definition of course book is a multi-level series that focuses on all four
skills, e.g. Headway, English File, Inside Out).
