Abstract: This study investigates the possible differences in the use of Communication Strategies (CSs) by English speakers of three different proficiency levels-intermediate, advanced, and native-in terms of the types and the frequency and their comprehensibility. The speakers narrated twenty sets of pictures, and their recorded narrations were listened to by thirty Japanese and thirty English native speakers to measure their comprehensibility. One-way chi-square was utilized to see the significant differences among the frequency of CSs used by the three speakers. A Two-Way ANOVA was used to see the significant differences among the means of comprehension tests by six equal groups. The results show that the intermediate speaker used far more CSs than the advanced speaker. No use of CSs was observed in the native speaker's data. As for comprehensibility, the higher the speaker's proficiency level was, the better his narrations were comprehended. In this paper, some pedagogical implications for the teach-ability of CSs are also discussed.
