Abstract

Writing is one of the English skills besides reading, speaking, and listening. It is considered as the most difficult skill that students have to learn because it takes a long process and it cannot directly finish. The reason why the researcher chooses argumentative text is because it is important in the academic writing. In academic writing, argumentative text used to express new and original ideas. Therefore, it needs strong arguments and supports. In Writing IV class, students of English Language Education Department of University of Muhammadiyah Malang were taught of writing argumentative essay. Because writing takes a long process, there is a high possibility that the students make mistakes in their essay writing.
