Unfortunately, the majority of students particularly in Indonesia still find difficulties on how to use grammar correctly. Some previous studies found that many students make errors in grammar. To overcome the problem, the students can utilize an online grammar checker. Grammarly is a kind of online grammar checker to help the students identifying the grammar errors. This present study focuses on knowing students’ perceptions of the use of Grammarly.

It helps them for checking their grammar, the content of Grammarly includes some features related to grammar such as grammar, spelling, punctuation and style, it provides direct and indirect feedback, and it save their time.
