ABSTRACT
In this study, the comprehension activities included in the ‘Yeni Hitit’ (Turkish) and the ‘New Headway’ (English) series, which are designed as second language textbooks, were investigated in terms of diversity, quality, and appropriateness for basic language skills; and the assessment and evaluation questions used in these activities were studied in terms of coverage, type of question (open-ended, multiple-choice, matching, true/false, etc.), and comprehensibility, etc. individually using the survey method. Then, the reading and listening activities contained in the books were studied and evaluated separately. Following the evaluation, the efficiency of the books in the learning/teaching process, as well as their positive and negative aspects, was established and the books were compared. Finally, the results of the study were presented, compared with those of other studies, discussed and recommendations were made accordingly.
