Writing is a process of formulating and organizing ideas in right words, delivering the writer’s purpose, and presenting them on a piece of paper. The objective of this research is to know the effectiveness of  TBLT (Task Based Language Teaching) toward ESP students’ writing achievement at STIE Muhammadiyah Tanjung Redeb.
