Abstract


The message and the story of student’s essays have become Misunderstood and misled which indicate unsuccessfully learning and teaching process in writing class activity. The readers and the writers are mostly disconnected by the types of global errors such as wrong order of major constituent, missing or wrong connector and missing cues to signal obligatory. Therefore, the research has revealed that students produce those global errors because of the construction of target language, anxiety and the lack of substantial knowledge about grammar and vocabularies. As a result, the teachers are expected to give new approaches in order to reduce errors and give an effective feedback and the students should learn more.

The researcher collected 25 essays from the first year of vocational high school students and had interview with the teachers and the students who made those personal recount essays by using semi-structured interview.
