This chapter deals with a specific topic in e- learning – acquisition of language grammar with the help of application designed to follow language class curriculum, and the analysis of errors collected by the application. Specifically, our interest lies with Japanese language and Croatian learners. For the purpose of this research, we have analyzed all the Japanese verbs and grammatical forms for A1 and A2 levels, and systematically added them to a simple application, which was distributed to students for a six months trial usage. Based on the user inputs, we have analyzed the most common lexical and grammatical errors. This article provides detailed information about the most commonly mistaken Japanese verbs and grammatical forms, and explains the most likely reasons behind these errors. The purpose of this research is to promote e-learning and CALL in Japanese education, and help teachers and learners of Japanese language in Croatia and wider. Since most data is not language dependent, results of this research can be used by any Japanese language instructor or student.
