Abstract

This study explored the reasons for the utilization of strategies in expressing gratitude among students and employees of a non-sectarian private higher educational institution in the northern part of the Philippines. The results were used as the basis of crafting teaching modules to enhance students’ gratitude. The respondents answered a Discourse Completion Task (DCT) based on Cheng’s model. An interview was done to determine the reasons for the usage of strategies. The findings revealed that the respondents used varied strategies in being grateful for the favor, services or material things offered. Moreover, the respondents exhibited similarities in their reasons for using varied strategies. The key findings of the study provided implications that the proposed teaching modules were seen as relevant in enhancing the students’ politeness in relation to expressing gratitude.
