Abstract: The current study evaluates the content of the textbook “Modified Fun with English” designed for the first grade in Al-Ahmadi Educational schools in the State of Kuwait from teachers’ perspectives. Both quantitative and qualitative methodologies were applied to 63 primary stage female teachers in Al-Ahmadi Educational Area. The questionnaire was based on a five-likert scale and covered 21 items; it was divided into three domains, which are: ‘layout and design, skills, and content-subject’. Furthermore, the questionnaire included open-ended questions. In addition, the interview questions were addressed to 5 teachers from the participants and 4 ELT supervisors who worked at Al-Ahmadi Educational Area. Frequencies, percentages, means and standard deviations were calculated for each item to figure out the perspective of teachers on how they rate the textbook in the light of the three questionnaire criteria. Interviews data and open-ended questions were analyzed and interpreted by using qualitative method of data analysis and the data was organized and interpreted thematically. The findings revealed that the teachers’ perspectives were in favor of the textbook “Modified Fun with English” except for some aspects in the textbook. These aspects are the focus on some of the language skills, the amount of mistakes in the textbook, and the lack of the teacher’s handbook and audio-visual aids to support the textbook. Thus, based on these findings of this study, a set of recommendations and suggestions were given to improve the textbook “Modified Fun with English” which is used for the first grade.
