Abstract
Metatext, as a recurrent topic, has long been well studied and shown to be a prom-inent feature of various types of academic discourse. But very few studies have paid attention to the empirical work about the effects of metatext on English writing skills of Chinese college students. This paper aims to find the relationship between the use of metatext devices as well as whether or not the quality of writ-ing and the direct instruction of metatext markers can enhance EFL students' writing ability.
