Abstract


An issue regarding writing as a challenging skill to be mastered in many languages is in line with Lindastom (2007) as cited in Westwood (2008:57) which stated that many students experience difficulties on writing greater than on reading activity related to the complexity aspect. Dealing with the issue, this study aimed at uncovering the students’ barriers in mastering their writing skill conducted in tertiary level. Qualitative in form of case study through triangulation involving observation, questionnaire, and interview was employed. As the result, students’ main barriers in writing are divided into three parts; the components of writing, the intrinsic factor of students, and the extrinsic factor of students’ writing activity.
