Anggi Arigusman
Abstract—This research aims to investigate student’s writing competence related to structure of narrative text in SFL perspective, highlights the problems, and examine whether L1 interferes the quality of the student’s writing. Then provides suggestion to overcome the problems. Qualitative case study approach was used in this study in which a narrative text written by a senior high school student is analyzed. The result reveals that the text has followed the common generic structure of narrative text. From SFL view some problems are found which are caused by the lack of knowledge about structures. Furthermore, L1 also interferes the student’s narrative writing.

Index Terms—Narrative text, writing, systemic functional linguistic.
