dc.description.abstract The aim of the study is to investigate the problems facing university students in using punctuation marks. It is based on three assumptions, first whether some of EFL university students’ problems in writing are due to their ineffective practice in using punctuation marks, secondly whether most EFL university students are not aware of punctuation marks, and the third one, whether EFL university students face difficulties in using punctuation marks in writing. To examine these assumptions, the researcher adopted a questionnaire for the students in order to collect the data. The instruments were distributed to the respondents; they were fifty (50) third year students of Omdurman Islamic University for men. The data was analyzed with use of the statistical analysis. The researcher has organized the gathered data, and then the data was presented in a form of graphs, percentages and tables. The data has obtained the necessary results that address the objectives of the research. After testing the hypotheses and relating the analyzed data to the research objectives, the researcher found that the majority of the third year students in Omdurman Islamic University for men face problems in using punctuation marks. Accordingly, the researcher recommends that it is advised to include the whole punctuation marks in the process of teaching and learning. Besides, the designed syllabus has to be concentrated in teaching and learning of the punctuation marks as a separate unit of writing system. And the teachers should try to use more activities to develop students' ability in punctuation marks. Moreover, remedial activities should be made to develop the level of less able students. en_US
