ABSTRACT

With the increasing importance of communicative competence, it is necessary to teach L2 learners communicative strategies (CSs). This study aims to investigate the effects of CSs instruction on Korean college students. In the present study, 45 students received nine-week CSs instruction from a NEST (Native-Speaking English Teacher). In order to examine the effects of CSs instruction in depth, methods of a triangulation were used. That is, data were collected from a questionnaire of 45 students on their strategies use, interviews with a pull-out group consisting of four students, and pre-, during-, and post- discussion tasks of the pull-out group. The findings indicate that CSs instruction affected participants’ use of CSs and enhanced L2 interaction. The students seemed to develop further understanding of L2 interaction after CSs instruction. They employed CSs to negotiate meaning as they learned CSs. Clarification request significantly increased after CSs. Based on the findings, several suggestions for further studies are also offered.
