Politeness has long been debatable among academics in various fields, particularly in linguistic, behavior, and cultural studies. What make politeness disputable is whether the concept of politeness itself can be accepted by all parties and what should be analyzed as an aspect of politeness. It is as well as to which still a debate is the aspects that are considered as indicators of politeness. Therefore, this paper is aimed to elicit the aspects revealing politeness in English as Foreign Language (EFL) community of practice settings. Through ethno-participation in the fieldwork by disguising as participant and recording on the subjects under the study, the collected data are then analyzed using the discursive approach. As the findings of the study, linguistic aspects are interpreted by relational work approach to reveal politeness in the fieldwork.
