      Coursebooks are great for newly qualified teachers. Some students believe that they must learn English from coursebooks, sometimes it could be difficult for them to realise that they could learn more outside one fixed coursebook.

      1.- Coursebooks are fine and a great help in the early years of your teaching as they provides tempo and structure.I still use coursebooks when I start with a new group and I need to assess their needs.
      2.- The advantage, I think. is that they provided a framework but the disadvantage is that they often do not provide topics relevant to the students cultural background.
