Abstract

However, some language learners are usually afraid to write the target language. Writing activity especially writing in foreign language is difficult and needs extra skill for some students and sometimes they feel bored. Most of their reason is the method of the English teaching process is not interesting and the less of chance for taking exercises to make paragraph writing or even an essay or text. To solve this problem, the teacher should have creative activity and alternative ways. Teacher should motivate and encourage students with interesting activities, for example teachers can improve students’ writing skill by using sketch because of sketch the students are able to get many ideas or opinion and apply it in written form especially in descriptive text.
