Redesigning higher-secondary English textbook

English for Today, the English textbook of the higher secondary level, redesigned in 2015, contains materials that are mostly written by foreign authors. Only a few of them are written by Bangladeshi writers. In my opinion, most of the reading materials are not suitable for our students because these are not written in the context of Bangladesh. The book, instead of helping the students to understand and master the language, increases fear among many of them. I think the texts in the book should be replaced with materials that are easy for them to understand and are composed preferably by Bangladeshi writers.
