In view of the fact that learner-centered instruction is the standpoint in education in new trends, teachers must be aware of students' characteristics in order to tailor their teaching to needs of learners. One of the areas which is closely related to characteristics and performance of language learners is the role of gender on language learning in general and writing performance in particular.
