Abstract
Writing is a core skill to assess learners’ language output proficiency and has long been attached importance in English curriculum and pedagogy. The author reviewed the three main writing approaches in English education. They were product approach, process approach and communicative approach. It was found that communicative approach best suits China’s English education curriculum and reform. Using the writing task in English Test for International Communication (ETIC) as example, this paper analyzed how the five elements in communicative approach like topic, writer, reader, language and purpose work together to shape good writing with real communication as core assessment and help to maintain learners’ motivation. In the end, some suggestions on teaching communicative writing in Chinese college English class were given.
