In this report students' English writing was subject to analysis based on quantity and quality. A cumulative total number of 211 writing samples were collected from collaborative lessons conducted three times in 2017. The students had improved their expression skills in regular lessons and achieved higher writing skills. By fostering independent attitudes, students were able to use many more words, and the content of their writing had improved by the end of the year. This can be attributed to collaborative learning as well as the cumulative results of their daily efforts.
