This paper attempts to describe and explain the errors made by Indonesian students in using English preposition of place and time. By doing so, it is expected that teacher can be more aware of some aspects that they should pay more attention to. This analysis will not only seek for the errors made by the learners, but it will also elaborate the factors triggering the errors, in the basis of underlying principles of linguistics. In addition, further analyses might enable the more understanding on the different locative and temporal concepts between English and Indonesian speakers. To achieve that remarkable elaboration, this study will combine error analysis and contrastive analysis in examining the phenomena of the use of English temporal and locative prepositions.
