In Linguistics, studies have been made on the interaction among intercultural participants to identify and explain the communication strategies they employed. However, only a few studies have explored the communication strategies between Korean and Filipino women. This study described and analyzed the verbal communication strategies and female speech between female Filipino and Korean students at the University of San Carlos (USC). Six paired research participants were asked to record their interaction. The conversations were natural, everyday conversations. Results of the study revealed that unfilled pauses, fillers, and self-repetition were the most commonly used as communication strategies from both nationalities. This study provides implications to intercultural pragmatics.
