Error Analysis in the Foreign Language Classroom (VIII Grade)

Julija Jaramaz

Abstract


Generally, learning English language for primary school children represents a problem. Many errors are produced as a result, including some which we will deal with in the research part of this work. This work deals with analysis of some grammatical and lexical errors in learning English language at primary school level. Research has been conducted (pupils in the VIII grade of elementary school from the central, southern and northern parts of Montenegro) within which we want to examine if there are any regional differences coming out of qualitative and quantitative error analysis and which are the most common errors for pupils of this level of schooling.The aim is to obtain results which might help our educational authorities with determing which aspects to pay special attention to when designing test and putting together programmes for elementary school children. These results can also help our teachers to know which grammatical and lexical aspects are the most difficult for them, and to focus their attention on how to teach them.
