To communicate effectively, we should organize the messages that we want to convey through conversation clearly. The organization of messages involves giving and demanding and this exchange might be more complicated than it seems. If we are demanding something, it means we are inviting to give, and if we are giving something, it means we are inviting to receive. That is the way exchanging something in communication. We are not only doing something ourselves, but we are also requiring something from our opponents. This interaction is called an exchange, in which giving implies receiving and demanding implies giving in response. The fourth semester students of the English Education Department of Muria Kudus University have experienced of conducting conversations with an English native speaker. The participants in this conversation obviously are having different background of language as their mother tongue and also coming from different culture. Therefore i assume that they will have different techniques in exchanging the information. The main purpose of the study is explaining how the participants are exchanging meaning realized in conversation between the students and the native speaker. The data source of this study is one transcription of the students and an English oral communication. The steps in analysing the data are; classifying the turns, clauses, moves produced by the participants, then analysing the speech functions classes base on Eggins and Slade “Analysing Casual Conversation”; explaining the commodities exchange in the conversation. From the result of this study I hope I can figure out whether the students and the native speaker have managed an acceptable and well structured casual conversation. It is very necessary in order to give some valuable suggestion for the teaching and learning English as a foreign language.
