The first part of the article deals with the presentation of grammar from the linguistic point of view. It gives the results of the analysis of the presentation of grammar in textbooks for German as a foreign language written by Croatian authors (in textbooks for elementary school, grammar school; for German as the first and the second foreign language). The analysis is carried out under the following criteria: explicit or implicit presentation of grammar, theoretical grammatical foundations, usage of metalinguistic terms, the language used for explanations. The second part of the article presents the analysis of grammar teaching in selected textbooks under didactical and methodical aspects (usage in texts, types of exercises and assignments). The results of the analysis are evaluated in terms of the supposed appropriateness and contemporary views regarding the grammar teaching in teaching foreign languages. What we are also interested in is the question whether and to what extent the requirements of the common international competencies description for the exam certificate have modified or changed the significance of grammar teaching in Croatian textbooks for German as a foreign language.
