English is the first foreign language in our country, which is taught from Elementary level to University level. English is also intensively used in International communication, in written as well in spoken communication. In addition, many  books of science, technology, art and other published issues are written in English. In English language, there are integrated skills to be mastered such as : Speaking, listening, reading and writing. As Haycraft states (1978: 8) that there are various skills in mastering of language : respective skill, listening (understanding the spoken language), reading (understanding the written language), andproductive skills- speaking and writing.
The researcher choose student’s composing narrative writing as a material of narrative writing. By assumption that the composition is the result of student’s product that can be known clearly. Sofyan (1999:86)stated that narrative is a story which is connected with events based on the plot. Then why the teacher vuse narrative text, it is because the narrative as a story a human experience, so that the studen5t arrange easly the compotition. As Keraf (1991:136) states that “Narrative as a story tells or describe an action in the past time clearly, so narrative is tried to answer the question : what had happened?. Naratve as a story, so it is should have the element that can make story more interesting to the reader such as a conflict and conclusion of the story.
