Among the four language skills, writing is the most important because it is a direct test of both communicative and mechanical skills. Writing is a natural communicative task because pupils have to formulate and communicate meaning either in the school context or in real life situations. For example, they can be required to tell stories, describe, explain, justify, and so on. Writing measures linguistic accuracy as well as effectiveness and appropriateness of language, discourse competence (rhetorical coherence and cohesion,) and ideas. In my last study (Negonga 1996, 4), I described writing as a means of exploring, self-discovering, creating, and communicating knowledge and articulating related personal values and beliefs. For this study I am going to explore writing in Oshindonga in my teacher-education college.
