Abstract

Errors in auxiliary verbs have been the common problems faced by Indonesian learners to write in English. The aims of this study are to see   (1)  kinds of errors are identified in the modal auxiliaries the students perform, and (2) how errors are used to improve grammatical sentences in the paragraph.  This study used classroom action research with two cycles.  This study was done involving 32 students of class VII-A of SMPN 1 Karangploso Malang.  The results show that in cycle 1, all aspects of auxiliary verbs including: to be, to do, to have, and modal were made in the error forms.  In average 81.2% students made errors.  In cycle 2, the errors decline into 25%.  In essence 75% of paragraph developed by students after learning protocols to correct the errors have limited errors in the auxiliary verbs.
