This study aimed at investigating the influence of English teaching forums on improving eleventh graders’ writing skills in Habla Secondary School for girls. It also aimed at examining the role of the stream of study (Literary Stream versus Science Stream). To achieve these objectives the researchers used the pre-test post-test approach on a sample of 14 female students chosen randomly from 73 eleventh graders in Habla Secondary School for girls. The collected date from the pre-test and the post-test was analyzed using means, standard deviations, paired sample t-test, independent t-Test and Cronbach Alpha Formula. The results revealed that using forums for teaching English had a positive influence on improving students’ writing skills. In the light of these results, the researchers recommended teachers to give value to the new technological tools as forums for improving students’ writing. The researchers also recommended decision makers to organize training sessions and workshops for discussing the effectiveness of using forums on improving the students’ writing skills and also to give training to the teachers how to teach writing effectively through forums.
