This research deals with the cross-language transfer from the Croatian language into the English language in written materials created by Croatian second-grade grammar-school students on national exams aimed at level B1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFRL). It focused on errors as defined by the CEFRL and the theory of Error Analysis. The errors were collected and grouped into three major categories: lexico-semantic, syntactico-morphological and typical Croatian constructions and structures in English. They were further classified into their subcategories. During the collection, transcription, analysis and discussion of the learner corpus, i.e. learner interlanguage, the researchers came to the conclusion that students have mostly problems in the following areas: use of articles, use of prepositions and word order.
