Teachers Perception of EFL Students Poor Writing Skills: The Challenges, Causes, and Remedies

Khaled Alostath

Abstract: The present study explores the causes and factors behind high school students' academic writing challenges from teachers' perspectives. Hence, the study aims to identify the factors that hinder learners writing experiences, analyze them, and recommend solutions to bridge the gap. Also, it provides recommendations for teachers to take into account in their teaching practices. The study participants were 27 EFL graduate teachers specialized in English Language and Teaching from a private university in Istanbul. The study findings revealed that teachers faced many challenges when teaching writing to their students for various reasons. Some of these challenges were due to the lack of vocabulary, lack of motivation, weak grammar competence, coherence and cohesion, and curriculum-related problems. Other problems that teachers shared are related to the lack of clarity and focus of written assignments, demotivation of teachers, and time management among newbie teachers.
