Assist. Prof. Dr. Ebru Yener Göksenli, J. Norman Baldwin

This study is situated within the framework of a contrastive investigation about the interlanguage of students that learn Spanish as a foreign language. The study analyzes some grammatical units in which Austrian students of Level C1 repeatedly commit errors. These students come from different group of language compared to Spanish: German. The aim of the present study is to exhibit the origin of the difficulties that appear when these students intend to learn some grammar units, and also to determine whether there is any coherence between these difficulties and their distant native language. It will also be intended to define the fossilized errors and show some examples that the students make in the given exams.
