Md. Iqbal Hasan | Maruf Rahman [2] | Abdullah Al Masum

Abstract: Language is human speech either spoken or written and most common system of communication. The purpose of the study was to identify the ability of English writing skill of class five students at Government primary schools in Dhaka city. It also intended to identify the common errors committed by the students and the English teachers thinking about improving their students writing skill. To achieve these purposes 100 students and 5 teachers were chosen from 5 Government primary schools at Dhaka city. A test containing controlled, guided and free hand writing was taken from the students and a questionnaire was developed to find out the teachers thinking about improving students writing skill. After taking test the scripts were assessed according to examination pattern of NAPE. The test score per student and item wise score as well as responses to questionnaire were analyzed using statistical devices like percentage, frequency and mean. The students average score of marks is 54 %. In free hand writing nobody got full marks. The situation of controlled writing is satisfactory, but overall amount of errors indicates the students inefficiency of writing skill in English. Punctuation and capitalization errors occupied the highest position. In this circumstance the teachers are putting their effort for improving students writing skill, but they have barriers in most of the cases. Though the teachers are trying to develop their students writing skill but it is developing very slowly indeed because of lacking of proper care by the concerned authority and as well as students evaluation system. In that case, Government should give extra effort of the government primary school in Bangladesh.
