Today, there are so many English textbooks published by different publishers which are distributed to every level of education; Elementary School, Junior High School, Senior High School, College, etc. It makes English teachers have more choices in selecting what textbooks they are going to use. On the other hand, selecting a good textbook which is suitable for students is still one of the problems for the teacher.
