This study aimed at identifying students’ difficulties in writing in university English classes. To achieve the intended objectives, a descriptive research design was employed. Students’ written texts were used as the sources of the research data. Twenty copies of students’ written texts were collected and examined for their errors. The finding indicated that inappropriate use of mechanics, inappropriate word choice, and inadequate sentence structure characterized many of the students’ written texts. The analysis also showed that evidence of difficulty in using correct grammar, tenses and transitional markers was available in the analyzed texts. Overall, the errors observed in the analysis of the students’ written works have made the messages of the students’ written texts obscure. Relevant recommendations were forwarded.
