English textbook is important for English learners. They can learn the target language by doing tasks available in the book. The tasks are arranged based on certain theoretical framework. TEFL in Indonesia adopts CLT which building communicative competence for learners as the goal of CLT. The teachers use textbook that is made on the basis of CLT with the aim to teach communicative competence (Richards, 2006:20). English is taught and spoken as a foreign language in EFL classroom (Laio, 200; Ying, 2010) and Constructivism in teaching English is viewed as part of cognitive psychology. The CC is developed into ICC and Byram (1997) said an interculturally competent speaker of a Foreign Language (FL) possesses both communicative competence in that language as well as particular skills, attitudes, values and knowledge about a culture. This study reveals that tasks with random access instruction (29.17%) also top down instruction (29.17%) are mostly used in this book. Created situation and meaning construction (58.67%) using collaborative learning (62.82%) are applied because this student’s book is for the third graders of primary school therefore teacher’s explanation and colorful images are important for learners. Task contains knowledge (29.17%) because learners must gain knowledge before applying it.
