This study aims to determine the process of acquiring a second language for children, by describing the gains made by children in the linguistic, and complete stages of competence. This study used descriptive-analytical methods. Data obtained directly and indirectly. Children sampled were children who lived in the area of Riau who have the first language of Malay. Based on the results of the analysis, language acquisition in children occurs in a natural sequence, regular sequence, and sequence of developments. Systematic error in this study has not been found because of undeveloped children’s knowledge about vocabulary related to their environment. The systematic problem can be an omission error seen in the word “etina” spoken by the child. The child wants to say was the word “betina” but it is in phoneme sound removed / b / so that it was said to be “etina”. The expansion of excessive language in the use of language also occurs, giving rise to false hypotheses that are influenced by children’s cognitive abilities. This error was found in the phrase “Laut tunggu Abak antar mobilnya ya”. The meaning of the word said by the child is to pick up the car located on the parking lot. So, there was a false concept between the word take and pick up in the child’s mind. So, errors in acquiring a second language were influenced by cognitive abilities and environmental factors. Language acquisition was getting better with increasing the life experiences of a child.
