Abstract
Course book plays a vital role in English teaching. No one could deny it that teaching young learners and adults are not identical. However, until now, the study of language course book evaluation has been focusing on learning materials for adults. The study presented here means to give some insightful analysis of course book evaluation and brings forth a framework for language course book evaluation.
