Lexical error is an inevitable process of second language vocabulary acquisition, and as such they are evidence of that process Lexical errors serve to evaluate lexical and general, of the learners in different language skills and to measure the quality of their written. The present paper examined the common lexical error produced by EFL learner and will propose some remedy to overcome this problem. From the author’s experience as a teacher in an English Foundation course at Green University, Lexical error in English writing made by students inspired me to investigate the factors that make students commit lexical errors. The investigation will only focus on common errors in the meanings and word usage in learners’ writing. The findings of the investigation will be used to develop remedial class activities for the benefit of EFL learners and help students use lexical items appropriately in their writing.
