It is aimed at finding out kinds of communication strategies that are used by non-native English speakers. The data is a casual conversation taken from non-native English speakers. The subject of this study was two people, they are Karina (non-native speaker) and Bryant (native speaker). The qualitative descriptive method is used to analyze the data and it functions to describe the kinds of communication strategies by non-native English speakers. After analyzing the data, it is found that the non-native speaker almost used all communication strategies in the conversation. Modification devices (Backchannel cues 40.74% or 22 turns, Clarification request 9.26% or 5 turns, Comprehension check 3.70% or 2 turns, Confirmation check 3.70% or 2, Pausing 22.25% or 12 turn, and Self repair 3.70% or 2 turns), Paralinguistic aspect (Gesture 1.85% or 1 turn and Mime 1.85%% or 1 turn), L1 – based (Language switching 5.55% or 3 turns and Foreignizing 1.85% or 1 turn), L2 – based (Appeal 1.85% or 1 turn) and Avoidance (Message 1.85% or 1 turnavoidance and Topic avoidance 1.85% or 1 turn). The strategies which not used are: approximation and circumlocution in L-2 based strategy. It is because non-native speaker does not have enough language skill to communicate with foreigner.
