In language education, teaching a language as a foreign language is an emerging field compared to teaching it as a mother tongue. However, the experiences obtained in mother tongue education are adapted to teaching a language as a foreign language with various amendments and therefore progress in this field has been achieved. Council of Europe presented some common criteria for teaching a language as a foreign language and these criteria are put into practice in many countries, including Turkey, therefore Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is also applied in teaching Turkish as a foreign language. Using a microstructural analysis, this study tries to describe the problems and/or challenges in "text writing" as a product of Turkish writing act process experienced by Syrian refugees that were forced to take refuge in Turkey due to various reasons.
