This study was conducted to see to what extent pragmatics is incorporated into a newly published EFL textbook series for Vietnamese upper-secondary school students under the National Foreign Language Project 2020 (NFLP 2020). The results show that there is a paucity of explicit information on pragmatics in this series. In addition, the presentations of different pragmatic aspects were found to be inadequate according to current theories of L2 pragmatics teaching. Accordingly, the present study supports the need to supplement this textbook series with range and depth of pragmatic input with pedagogically adequate tasks that can increase pragmatic knowledge.
