The aim of this paper is to study writing in English as a skill in ESL. The purpose of this research paper is to investigate this issue and bring into discussion queries like how and why ESL learners find it challenging to write academically respecting the norms. Based on my own personal experience in writing and through my observation in my writing class in an American College, this paper seeks to differentiate between varieties of English that non-native speakers happen to mix when they write for academic purposes. Another intention of this present work is to culturally and psychologically interpret and account for the difficulties ESL students face in the process of writing in a linguistic situation when they are deemed to use English as SL in an English speaking country. Finally this paper is meant to inspire teachers of ESL to reflect on these concerns and find the proper teaching tactics and practices to prepare ESL students for such an experience.
