writing has been a monster for most people in my country, including my beloved students. all they say when they hear that word is; “ooohh noooo, no writing, pls dont :))”, as if they were about to do the most unpleasant thing. IT IS an UPHILL struggle, especially for adult learners.
this should be overcome i think as writing is a part of preserving values and cultures, so if nation does not write i could not imagine what happen next.
well, i think the problems are many; grammar is just the tip of the iceberg. i myself, i dont think i am good at writing, but somehow i must write and write, just make it into da habit.
if grammar is not the only problem then i can say that probably revealing one’s self is very hard for someone. i have a student who is fluent in english, but when i offer him to write in weblog, shaking his head off he said; no thanks, i am not open person so i m too shy to write.
i wonder if someone could motivate da students to write more and more
