Reading and writing Learners like to make lists, read and write, have guidance and written directions. The best way they study is doing notes and ideas in their own words, review notes after done writing them down, and convert visual information into written words. They will use resources from papers, books, magazines, or even computers and have printouts that help follow along with the notes. Students fall into one of these for learning categories. Knowledge and information is something that all students are going to use if they know it or not.
Learning second language has become a trend around the world over these years. In nowadays society, just knowing one language seems not enough for today’s competitive environment. Along with the increasing number of the people who want to learn a second language, teacher’s mission of teaching second language become more and more significant. However, many teachers are holding the misconceptions which might influence the learnings of second language learners. “Myths and Misconceptions about Second Language Learning,” written by Barry Mclaughlin, is an article discussing the misconceptions about second language acquisition.
Students, who learn English, learn not only to comprehend audio or texts but also to produce pieces of writing to communicate and support ideas. Therefore, managing writing skills has become very important as part of the management of academic skills. Corrective feedback is considered one important tool in the writing process. For teachers providing feedback is a tough task and for students it is a constant concern as it is meant to help them improve in their productive skills. This literature considers types of feedback, efficacy measured
The Importance of Teacher feedback in Students’ Writing Improvement Writing is an important skill contributing to the student’s language learning. However, learning how to write is not easy because writing is considered the most difficult skill to acquire. According to Zacharia (2005), it requires having a certain amount of L2 background knowledge about rhetorical organization, appropriate language use or specific lexicon with which they want to communicate their ideas. Therefore, the teachers have to make an effort to help students enhance their writing skill and increase their motivation to accomplish the writing task. One of the most useful techniques to help student develop writing skill is giving feedback.
In order to ensure that students successfully master the writing skills, teachers need to employ methods and approaches which produce positive outcomes in the students learning. Teachers are sometimes out of idea on how to teach writing to the students interestingly. They do not implement the latest approaches or methods that are used nowadays to attract the students’ attention in writing. Many students find it difficult to do the intense and active thinking that is needed for a proper writing convention. It is frightening for them to sit down before a blank sheet of paper or computer screen and know that an hour later, nothing is written on it.
Computational thinking has become a widespread context in computer sciences (Rong-sheng, 2009). It is expected that computational thinking will be a fundamental skill to be used by all individuals within 21st century (Wing, 2006). Researches made on computational thinking defined this concept in the best way and revealed that this concept is used in a wide range (Kazımoğlu, Kiernan, Bacon & Mackinnon, 2012). According to Bundy (2007), computational thinking has an effective role on researches in all disciplines. Researchers use computational metaphors in order to enrich the theories in various problems.
Writing requires making choices. We can help students by teaching how to see and make choices when working with exercises in every lesson. We can introduce students to a process of sorting ideas by teaching them how to use exercises to build ideas. When students have a better understanding of how to discover and arrange ideas, they will have more success in getting their ideas on paper. Reading Activities When you start the process of learning a second language, the importance of reading is crucial.

Language learning is not a product but a process, a live medium of communication. The Learner is not a passive recipient but a conscious producer. The students at Graduation level have already acquired proficiency in their mother tongue, and so they try to adopt the already gained insights to the Foreign Language they are learning. This leads to the Mother- tongue Influence on the second language. The common mistake committed by the students is, they take a sentence in English and an expression in their Mother-tongue; when both these elements are juxtaposed, it leads to ridiculous or imperfect expression.
