Abstract
This paper is aimed at describing English students' competence at Universitas Jambi in performing speech act of giving suggestion as one of speech acts studied in English subject. Discourse Completion Test (DCT) is used as data collection method and the taxonomy of suggestion linguistic realization strategies by Martinez-Flor (2005) is used as the framework for analyzing data. The framework divides suggestion strategies into three main categories, namely direct, conventionalized form, and indirect. The finding suggests that most students employ conventionalized form of delivering suggestion, while others tend to be more direct. Only a small number of them use impersonal and hint as indirect strategy in delivering suggestion. It seems that studentsdo not use many variations when producing suggestion speech act. However, some of the data interestingly show some modification strategies to downgrade the imposition a suggestion might have. Finally, it is expected that this research can contribute to developing the teaching and assessing of students' sociocultural competence particularly at English Department,Universitas Jambi.
