Selecting the appropriate English textbooks is very important. Teachers have the authority to choose textbooks from various publishers. English textbooks from native-speaking countries are teacher efforts for students to better understand English. As did the teachers at SMA Hang Tuah 2 Sidoarjo who chose English textbooks from Oxford University Press. This study aims to determine the teacher's criteria in choosing imported English textbooks. To answer this issue, this study conducted semi-structured interviews with three English teachers at SMA Hang Tuah 2 Sidoarjo. The interview questions are based on the David Williams’ theory. The results show that teachers choose imported English textbooks based on nine criteria, namely up-to-date methodology, guidance from non-native speakers, needs of a second language learner, and relevance to the socio-cultural environment, the complex of skill presentation, the real-life examples, flexible to be applied to teacher teaching strategies, a complete guide in assessment, and receive an international certificate. For future researchers, researchers can explore more about the views of students and the use of these imported English textbooks which have been chosen by teachers in the classroom.
