Gee and Handford (2013:1) relate discourse analysis to everyday experience and to the natural use of language. It is therefore, can be what people produce to express themselves when they contribute or deliver a message. It mainly plays a vital role in applied linguistics; however, it has association with other disciplines such as sociology and psychology Trappes-Lomax (2004: 133). Nowadays, what makes discourse analysis essential is the need to analyze the wide use of modern term in academic language. The objective of this paper is to reduce the increasing number of students who focus on memorizing written or spoken information even if it is in their social context. Therefore, the samples used in this study are limited to understand students written texts in the situation of Oman. Moreover, students need to relate meanings of words in a text to some elements of discourse analysis. Grabe (1984:110) believes that relating sentences and clauses to each other's is one of the surface possible elements that discourse does so as the meaning can be interpretable properly. The paper also sheds lights on the impact of using SPRE pattern to enhance students’ writing.
