This study focuses on analysing the types and sources of grammatical errors found in written English essays composed by native Javanese students in Akper Kesdam Diponegoro Semarang as well as investigating the teaching methods used by English teachers in Akper Kesdam Diponegoro Semarang to improve the students’ English grammar skill. The main data were obtained from forty-five students and were analysed based on the conceptual framework of X-bar Theory. The result of the error analysis shows that there are 119 errors, which include errors in subject-verb agreement, inflection, errors in the use of determiner, errors in the use of preposition, misuse of adjective, misuse of adverb, verb errors, noun errors, and double subject. The analysis of the error causes shows that most of the errors are due to intralingual and developmental matters, while the rests are caused by interlingual factor. The finding of the teaching method investigation revealed that the teachers used deductive teaching approach such as explanation followed by exercises.
