This research analyzed errors and the causes of errors in using the ‘V1 zhe V2’ structure of the Chinese-language program students (first year students in 2016 – 2018 academic year), at Chiang Mai University. The research examined 262 sentences from courses exercises, and midterm and final exams, which were marked by lecturers. According to research results, the errors of students in using the ‘V1 zhe V2’ structure, from the most to the least frequency, were as follows: the wrong use of word (44.23%); misordering error (29.17%); omission error (15.54%); making two errors at once (9.62%), and redundancy (1.44%). Moreover, the causes of errors involved the following three issues: 1) mother-tongue interference, 2) learners’ lack of sufficient knowledge in using the ‘V1 zhe V2’ structure, and 3) textbook providing unclear explanation and usage of ‘V1 zhe V2’ structure.
