    Second language writing strategies: a case study with EFL senior students at an inernational university
    The study aimed to investigate the English language writing strategies used by Business English major students in Academic Writing course at an international university in Thailand. There were two major areas of concern, which were hoped to be addressed in the course of the research. The study applied a mixed-method approach; it combined the quantitative analysis of the Likert scale statements in the writing strategy questionnaires and the students' writing samples with the qualitative analysis of the open-ended questions in the questionnaires and the semi-structured interviews. The collected qualitative data would provide an in-depth insight into the nature of the students’ writing. The implications of the research were as follows: to raise the students' awareness of the English writing compositional skills, to emphasize the communicative purpose of writing in English, and to train them to use the peer collaboration strategy to facilitate their English writing most effectively.
