This study aims to explore the grammatical errors made by the students of SMKN 2 Tegallalang in practicing English. The theory applied for this study is Error Analysis Perspectives on Second Language Acquisition (1974) edited by Jack C. Richards. In this study, the method applied is descriptive analysis method. The data of the analysis are taken from the compositions by the students of SMKN 2 Tegallalang. As a results of analysis show that some errors are made by the students in writing a sentence. Actually those students are able to use English in writing, but they still made some errors. The most error they committed like singular-plural, word form, word choice, verb tense, add word, omit word, word order, spelling, punctuation, an article, unclear idea, and error of run-on sentence. In conclusion, the students have learned English for some years in junior high school, but they still make many errors in practicing their English. Definitely, it’s a big deal for English teacher and institution in improving those students skill. Also, found some factors that cause the students still made errors, such as age and motivation and lack of awareness of EFl.
