The underlying criterias when analysing the target coursebook of this research are formal design, scientific content and language – expressional features. In the end of the study, it is clearly seen that the coursebook is convenient in terms of form, content and texts. Considering the scientific content, it is also noticed that criterias are based upon the texts which are, especially in the earlier units, prepared according to A1 level. However, it is also reported that there have been some deficiencies in range of visuals and texts. Therefore, considering the visuals inside and on the cover of the coursebook, especially in A1 level, it might be suggested that visual support for texts, and increase of more attractive and colourful visuals from daily life would generate positive perception of the target language.
