This is accomplished by trying out new language forms and structures as they stretch their interlanguage to meet communicative needs and to see what works and what does not. </li></ul><ul><li>enables learners to reflect on their own target language use and to control and internalize their linguistic knowledge. </li></ul>What is the function of writing in EFL/ESL learning?

English Onboard Enhancing Writing English Onboard Enhancing Writing Research tells us that writing is a social activity – communication always has a purpose, a context and an intended audience – thus students need to engage in a variety of relevant writing experiences which draw on, analyze, and investigate different purposes and readers. Why do students need to engage in a variety of writing experiences? * To learn more about research on writing, watch the one-hour panel discussion held by Charles Bazeman, Peter Elbow, and George Hillocks: 50 years of research on writing: What have we learned? at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrcq3dzt0Uk
