This study intends to examine the speech act of direction giving in L1 Persian and L2 English comparing it to the baseline data in L1 English. To this end, two sets of direction-giving interviews (in Persian and L2 English) were conducted. As for the L1 English data, the researchers relied on Taylor-Hamilton’s (2004) results of the interviews with native English speakers. The three sets of data were then analyzed using Chi-square test. The findings revealed the similarities and differences in performing this speech behavior between the two cultures. Furthermore, L2 English results shed light on the possibility of transfer of training. Finally, pedagogical implications were discussed in the context of second language learning.
