Abstract

Thematic progression refers to how an idea is expanded from one sentence to another in a text. Therefore, thematic progression is an important element in writing production. Studies on writing have mostly focused on the linguistic, learning and teaching, and experimental study. However, studies on thematic linguistic dimension have only discussed the thematic progression surrounding a text without taking into account other variables such as student category, while studies on text production as a foreign language other than English are limited and do not explore the relationship between the language proficiency with the use of thematic progression. Therefore, this study aims to explain the mastery of thematic progression in narrative texts produced by non-native advanced students of Spanish based on students’ category and to identify their relationship with language achievement. This study analyses 30 narrative texts which involves 106 paragraphs. The movement of ideas in each paragraph is analysed based on the thematic progression scheme outline, Rheme Regression, Rheme Iteration, Mix Theme, Box Development and Pair to Single Development. The findings reveal that all categories of students utilize Mix Theme dominantly without paying attention to the genre of writing. Student category, in fact do not play a role nor influence the construction of their thematic progression. No significant correlation was found between thematic progressions with the language achievement. These findings prove that the thematic progression is capable as an effective technique to teachers and students to form and develop a coherent writing.
