In this time of domination of English in all fields, including linguistics, methodology of preparing textbooks for learning and teaching the foreign languages is also under its influence. This article shows how some achievements in this field can be well used, but also how it‘s necessary to pay attention to differences, whether structural, sociolinguistic, or purely pragmatic when writing a textbook for teaching the "little" languages such as Bosnian. Apart from some theoretical assumptions, this article offers some very practical advice that can be applied to writing books of other languages.
