Course books are extensively adhered to in the classes I have been privy to up until this point. It is mainly attributed to the fact that written tests are the emphasis, rather than written communication. So only the course book is important and tested on, all else is secondary. That being said, the best teachers I have worked with, knowing the requirements of the education system, use supplements, sometimes real-world, to liven up the lesson and make the coursework relevant. This, I feel, is a good balance, since it keeps the students grounded and following along a tried plan, yet allows enough flexibility in their case to create more interesting lessons.
