This dissertation concentrates on the linguistic influences that exist in the teaching,  learning  and  acquisition  of  second  languages.  It gives  an  account  about  the effect  that  the  native  tongue  (L1)  has  on  the  L2.  The  languages  we  have  used  for  this purpose are Spanish as the mother tongue and English as the L2. After an investigation about some of the linguistic phenomenon that appear in this influence, a questionnaire aimed to get an error analysis takes place. Those errors have been treated to make the reader realise and understand that a negative transfer exists and it must be solved. Only lexico-morphological  and  grammatical  samples  anderrors have been  dealt  with  as  a first approximation  about  the  matter.  The  obtained  outcomes  show  that  influence  and transference  are  two  aspects  of  high  importance in the  learning  of  second  languages and,  either  positive  or  negative,  the  teacher must be aware  of  how  to benefit or  cope with them.
