Hi, I want to tell you that all that you say is totaly true. But I think most countries have shifted from these kind of textbooks which focues only on grammar. We all know that English language is taught everywhere for communicative purposes. This needs a real practice of English as it is spoken by its native speakers. In Algeria,my country, our English textbook has been completly changed in order to serve the real needs of our students. Before, it was full of grammar rules which help the student in doing nothing outside the classroom.
