    Question Textbooks that aren't so commercialized

    Hello,

    I'm seeking primary and middle school textbooks for Chinese students of various levels that are not so commercialized.

    Most textbooks are very commercialized and focus on shopping, self-promotion, social status, and similar life topics.

    I would consider ESL textbooks or American classroom Social Studies textbooks.

    Welcome to the forum.

    What do you mean by "commercialised"? What sort of topics do you want to see covered in the textbooks you're seeking?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    ESL books are notorious for sticking to what they see a safe subjects that don't cause offence., which is what leads to the sameness about many of them. What sort of subjects would you like to see used?
