dc.description.abstract This study aims to analyze the different types of errors made in Simple Past Tense in narrative texts by students in the EFL classroom in a high school from Quito. The group of learners of this study present difficulties in their English writing skills, structuring sentences, writing paragraphs in a correct way and narrating events in past. The participants selected for this study were 39 students between 16 and 17 years old. All of them were native Spanish speakers and learners of English as a foreign language. Three narrative documents written by the students were collected during synchronous and asynchronous environments. The researcher identified, classified and analyzed the errors in Simple Past Tense made by the participants and based the study on Error Analysis theory. The author found 309 errors items which were classified into Omission, Addition, Misformation, and Misordering errors (Dulay et al., 1982). These errors were made in Synchronous and Asynchronous environments. The study found more Misformation errors in students’ writings – 193 total errors, 87 errors in the Synchronous modality and 96 in the Asynchronous environment. The findings in this study revealed that the high frequency of errors is caused by Intralingual interference en_US
