Some notes on the Grammatical Problems of EFL Students In Writing Compositions and Suggestions for Solving Them

Auther : Ali M. El-Sayed

Most ungrammatical sentences in EFL students writing probably result from mother tongue interference or an incorrect or incomplete knowledge of the rules or patterns of the target language. It is unlikely that all errors in grammar can be accounted for in this way. This is due to the fact that many errors native speakers make may be attributed to indecision, distraction, generalization, or other factors, and such elements ma account for a percentage of the errors made by writers of second languages.

Prior to their acceptance in the faculty of education, all the students wishing to be English majors were required to take a written and spoken test. According to the result of the test the students were divided into two groups, each of mixed abilities. In their first year, the program was planned to help students to improve their skills in speaking, reading and writing. The language the students use in their social and official interaction in Arabic.

The writer collected 48 compositions that were written in class during a fifty-minute period. A variety of topics within the experiential range of students were suggested and the students were given the complete freedom to choose their favorite topic and develop their own ideas. The students were not permitted to use a dictionary or receive any help from the teacher during that time.
