Isi artikelThis paper describes the attempts being made by an English writing teacher to improve the secondary students’ writing skill in a national-plus secondary school in Serpong area. The main problem found in the EFL students’ writings is the use of the first language concept in their English sentences, or first language interference. Shifting the concept from Indonesian language concept into English when students write is the huge challenge faced by most EFL teachers. The paper uses descriptive method to describe the challenges faced by both teacher and students in the writing class. It also employs textual analysis on samples of students’ writing. The data were gathered through classroom observation and students’ written work.

The paper concludes that those attempts are able to raise students’ awareness of the use of English language concept in their sentences, resulted in their effort to write more carefully. The attempts have also raised their confidence to write in English and thus, led to them to be courageous in exploring their English.
