Abstract This study investigates persistent grammatical errors carried over from first to second year students of Spanish as a Foreign Language at the University of Queensland in Australia. The corpus consisted of 151 written tests produced by students in first year (first and second semesters), and 44 written tests in second year (first semester only). Data collection was carried out by identifying grammatical errors and classifying them according to linguistic criteria, such as the language area and the grammatical system affected. The analysis was based on an Error Analysis methodology (Corder 1967; Richards 1980; Fernandez 1997) indicating that morphosyntactical errors in the concordance grammatical system are the most frequent grammatical errors in first year students, and that these errors persist by the second year of instruction.
