Abstract

National English Writing Contest for technical and vocational college students is an authoritative event hosted by Higher Education Steering Committee of the Ministry of Education for ten years. Its idea and feature of test questions coincide with the orientation and teaching goal of L2 writing in higher vocational colleges. Thus, it might be an effective attempt to improve writing skills with contest and combine the contest event with daily teaching of English writing. This is to analyze case of 10 students who were tutored for writing contest. Based on the scoring criterion of the contest, the case revealed problems of L2 writing in higher vocational colleges and the significance of contest tutoring for the purpose of better monitoring teaching in the aspects of teaching contents, teachers’ role and method of evaluation.
