Abstract

The aims of this study is to identify the ability of students in using grammar and the grammatical problems that often occur in students’ writing as well as the sources of the problems in descriptive text. This study was conducted at the eighth grade students of SMPN 1 Praya in academic year 2014/2015. The population of this study was the eighth grade students of SMPN 1 Praya, which consisted of 324 students divided into 10 classes with approximately 33 students in each class. Class VIII-8 was taken as the sample through cluster random sampling. The data were collected by using writing test and interview. Writing test was given in order to know the ability and grammatical problems of students. Meanwhile, the interview was conducted in order to know the sources of grammatical problems. The data were analysis based on the six aspects of grammar; tenses, agreement, structure, pronoun, preposition and word order. The result was that the ability of students was shown in their mean score of 59.31 which was categorized as “poor”. Meanwhile, most grammatical problems faced by students were the application of agreement and pronouns where they were not able to use both of the aspects properly. Based on the result of interview, the problems were caused mostly by the ignorance of the students on grammatical aspects. Many of them never obtained more detailed explanations about basic aspects of grammar from their teacher.
