The data was evaluated, and the grammatical problems were identified and divided into distinct groups.

According to the data, the verb received a score of 24.7%, the verb to be received a score of 16.9%, the preposition received a score of 65.7%, the demonstratives received a score of 5%, and the article received a score of 60.5%.

The preposition category had the highest error rate, at 65%, while the total number of grammatical problems was 175%.The study also indicates that students were unable to identify differences in rules between the English and Arabic languages.
