dc.description.abstract The current research aims at shedding light on the effect of interfering the first language in developing English writing competence of first year English students at the University of Mohammed El Bachir El Ibrahimi. This study aims to identify the challenges that learners have when learning the English language, mainly in writing. One of the key goals of both teachers and students in this regard is to achieve a satisfactory level of writing in English. Many students, on the other hand, are unable to write well due to difficulties in writing caused by mother tongue interference. Therefore, the aim of this study is to find out whether students’ problems and difficulties are caused by their mother tongue interference. In order to fulfill the aim of the study, this research was conducted through a qualitative method for the semi-structured interview with 3 written expression teachers at the University of Mohammed El Bachir El Ibrahimi, to ask them about the way they use to identify learners’ writing level, the essential causes and different types of errors made by1st year learners, ended with some suggestions to prevent this type of problem.

The findings show that the more learners use L1 in their writing, the more they commit errors and this will affect their writing performance. Thus, learners' level would not develop en_US
