Abstract
This study aims to describe the results of the validation of the textbook developed using both contrastive and error analyses. This study, however, did not test the textbook’s effectiveness in improving students’ understanding of learning German grammar. The results of the study provide an overview of elements of the textbook that should be improved and maintained based on the inputs and evaluation from the validators. The study used a quantitative method. Material experts, textbook experts, and students as users were employed to be the validators. The instrument of validation assessed material quality, material presentation, layout, and the use of the language. The results of the study showed that the overall assessment indicators fell into the feasible-to-use category. One of the strengths of the textbook is the material presented. The contrastive and error analyses used to develop the textbook allow the materials to be well presented and effectively adapted to students’ needs.
