ABSTRACT

A wide variety of factors have been assumed to influence language learners’ performance that range from cognitive to affective factors. Given this assumption, this article was designed to explore the process approach to writing by Korean EFL students, being centered around investigation of their perception during the respective phases of the process writing from a cognition-based perspective. Built on qualitative data, the most striking discrepancies were revealed between skilled student writers and unskilled ones, depending on their overall proficiency in English. EFL student writers’ performance seemed to be perceived as directly coupled with individuals’ overall linguistic ability. This was particularly so in that EFL writing involves cognitively demanding processes, which could most likely affect a student’s on-going performance in writing.
