Mastering English is necessary to face the advancement of globalization. As one of the language skills, writing has an important role, especially for student learners. Writing helps students express their ideas in answering the essay and accomplishing their assignments in school. Nevertheless, writing is the most difficult skill to be learned. Not only great vocabulary, but writing also required Grammar. Since learning English is different from learning the Indonesian language, the students who learn English may produce many errors in their writing.
The purposes of this study were to find out the types of grammatical errors in the students’ descriptive text and the causes of grammatical errors in the students’ descriptive text. The researcher analyzed the types of error based on the theory from Dulay et al. Meanwhile, for the causes of error, the researcher used Norrish’s theory.
This research applied a qualitative study and used a descriptive analysis design. The researcher collected the data through documentation and interview. The researcher took the data from the students’ descriptive text and interviews. The researcher used the error analysis method developed by Gass and Selinker’s steps. Those were identifying the errors, classifying the errors, quantifying the errors, and analyzing the cause of errors.
The results showed that the types of errors found in the students’ descriptive text were Omission, Addition, Misformation, and Misordering. The causes of errors can be classified into three categories such as Carelessness, First language interference, and Translation. Hence, an exciting learning style from the teacher and mastery of grammar also vocabulary with lots of practice are needed to help students writing skills in the future.
