ABSTRACT This thesis aims at finding out and describing different perspectives on the degrees and the use of politeness and impoliteness strategies between male and female students in reacting to EFL classroom interaction. The quantitative data was analyzed through the formula of Mann-Whitney nonparametric test (Santoso, 2014) while the qualitative data was analyzed by using the interactive model of Miles and Huberman (Miles, Huberman, & Saldaña, 2014). The results of the research demonstrate that there are slight differences of gender-based perspectives of the students on politeness and impoliteness strategies in EFL classroom interaction. Concerning the politeness and impoliteness degrees, the different viewpoints occurred in four cases: (1) one student came late and walked silently to the seat, (2) a few of the students started talking to each other, (3) one student told the teacher to continue the class lecture, and (4) the late-coming student apologized privately for being late. Meanwhile, the different perspectives also appeared on certain uses of politeness strategies between male and female students. Firstly, in the use of face-saving act strategy when they came late. Second, in the use of bald on record politeness, off-record politeness, and positive politeness strategies when their friends did not follow the teacher’s instruction. Next, in the use of negative politeness and bald on record politeness in the way of showing disagreement to the teacher’s decision of asking talkative students to leave the class. Fourth, in the use of off-record politeness when the teacher dismissed the class and gave assignments. Lastly, the researcher claimed that the silence used by male and female students could be considered as silent politeness or silent impoliteness depend on its application in interaction.
