Abstract

The study aims to analyze the grammatical errors of the second semester students in writing short stories (Kurzgeschichte). The research used qualitative techniques and the data collection instrument was a short story writing test. The research subjects were 24 students of the German Language Education Study Program, FBS Universitas Negeri Medan who took the Schreiben A2 course. The results of the research showed that the students made German grammatical mistakes in writing short stories. The German grammar mistakes were caused by students' lack of knowledge of German grammar and vocabulary. It is recommended that students enrich their German vocabulary (Deutsche Vokabeln) and improve their mastery of German grammar (Deutsche Grammatik).
