This present study investigates how Thai basic learners acquire the acquisition order of te form and which factors have an impact on the learning of te form. Informants were 38 students at a basic level. 48 different verbs (12 verb types, 4 words for each type) were selected to ask these learners to complete a verb completion task. The data were then analysed by Decision Tree. Analysis indicates that the verbs which end with the – u typeand – tsu type were most performed in te inflections and the most difficult te inflections were the verbs which end with the – ru type, – iru typeand – kuru type. The study concludes that there are a lot of Japanese verbs that end with the – rusound and this made Thai learners confused. To resolve this problem, the learners tried to generate some principles such as deleting – ru and put tte at the end of a verb to conjugate the te form or using their background knowledge which gained from reading a text or hearing their teacher’s use in the classroom.
