ABSTRACT
The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the textbook Breeze published by the Ministry of National Education in terms of the A2 level criteria determined as determined in the European Language Portfolio. To this end, the textbook is firstly analyzed in general in terms of the total number of tasks, their distribution among five skills, communicative approach, learner autonomy, student-centeredness, pair/group work and authentic text use. Then the A2 level descriptors taken from the language biography component of the European Language Portfolio are formed into a checklist and a detailed quantitative analysis and evaluation of the textbook are performed through this checklist. The results of these analyses suggest that the textbook partly meets the A2 level criteria both in quantitative and qualitative sense.
