Communicative language teaching (CLT) has been widely influential in English language teaching for the last two decades. Therefore, many materials including textbooks have been designed considered the principles of communicative language teaching, and have been analysed to see how, or if, they are compatible with communicative language teaching. In the context of Turkey, several high school textbooks have been designed, and have undergone such analysis but there is no prior example of a study investigating the content of New Bridge to Success (NBS) in detail with respect to CLT. This study aims to explore the extent to which New Bridge to Success Elementary for Anatolian High Schools is in keeping with the principles of CLT. To this end, the study used content analysis to examine the tasks given in each section of the textbook, and to identify the sub-skills the textbook intends to focus on.
