The present study aimed to recast the issue of production of speech act of persuasion in English and Persian languages. This study first attempts to analyze the types of persuasive strategies used in English and Persian. To this end, 184 Persian speakers and native speakers of English participated in this study. The participants of this study were all university students. The data was collected by means of a discourse completion test (DCT). The questionnaire consists of 6 items in different contexts close to real life persuasive situations. Chi-square test was used to analyze the data. The participants’ responses were analyzed and the influences of gender and culture on the speech act of persuasion were discussed. Results indicate some differences and similarities between Persian and English native speakers in employment of this speech act which provide some pedagogical solution to pragmatic difficulties of English language learners in classrooms and their miscommunications in general.
