Learning English becomes more and more important nowadays since we know that English is not only an International language but also the world language, which can be used to communicate around the world. In Indonesia, English is learnt as a foreign language. Learning a different language is sometimes difficult since the target language has different element compared to the native language. These
differences sometimes cause students make errors. Making errors is an inevitable part of learning. People could not learn language without first systematically committing
errors. This final project primarily deals with grammatical error analysis. It describes the core tense system errors produced by second year students of MTs Mamba’ul – Ulum Bedanten – Bungah – Gresik.
