The Language Research Center at King Khalid University organized a seminar on December 01, 2014 that included a presentation conducted by Mr. Mohammad Adil, which was titled Our Coursebooks: Friends and Foes? It gave an overview of the effectiveness of our textbooks used in the skill courses at four levels in the Department of English. The presentation was primarily based on a case study he had conducted to determine how effective the teachers in Department of English think these books are. The findings of the case study resulted in some practical suggestions regarding the efficient and judicious use the of textbooks. He emphasized proper adaptation of them according to learners’ needs even if the books are well-designed. The presentation was followed by an interactive discussion during which the participants shared their views, made comments and raised some questions. Overall, The Language Research Center found the presentation worthwhile, which will cater to the curriculum development at the Faculty of Languages and Translation in the future.
