However, Maximum Bangladeshi students have great fear in writing English in their own words and face many difficulties. Students have this fear because of – lack of vocabulary, lack of concentration, inadequate knowledge on grammar, sentence construction etc. The students of secondary level education in Bangladesh are accustomed to memorizing the paragraph and write the memorized paragraph on exam script for lake of creativity or free handwriting which implies that students are not ready to think on their own and create something new (Hasan,2014).
