Misunderstandings between teachers and learners often occurred in online teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic due to the unclear information conveyed. To minimize these misunderstandings, knowledge of the conversational implicature is needed. This study aims to identify which forms of maxim violations occurred in the EFL online teaching and the description of the conversational implicatures contained. The subjects in this study were conversational transcriptions during EFL online teaching. A descriptive qualitative design, the research used notes and observation techniques to collect data. The results of data analysis showed that violation of maxims occurred in various kinds of utterances, including violations of the maxim of quality, the maxim of quantity, the maxim of relation, and the maxim of manner. This suggested that conversational implicatures often took place during the EFL online teaching process and could be minimized by obeying the maxim in every conversation.
