    Abstract: This research aims to investigate a subdivision of speech acts,
    compliments and compliment responses, and to see how EFL learners in
    Taiwan perceive and return compliments. The participants were
    sixty-seven first year English majors from two universities in
    Northern Taiwan. They were asked to fill out a set of discourse
    completion task questions regarding compliments. After the
    participants completed the discourse completion task questions, the
    data were collected and the responses were categorized into different
    types according to Herbert's taxonomy of compliment responses. The
    results showed that EFL learners do perceive compliments and give
    compliment responses in ways that are different from other cultural
    groups. It is evident that there is first culture transfer in
    compliments and compliment responses. EFL learners tend to accept
    compliments readily with appreciation token and comment acceptance.
    Such a behavior is against the principle of modesty of the Chinese
    culture. The reason may be due to their lack of linguistic skills and
    sociolinguistic knowledge of compliments and compliment responses.
    Thus, it is necessary for EFL teachers to provide information on the
    appropriate ways of responding to different types of compliments under
    the conversational principles of agreeing with the complimentee, and
    at the same time, avoiding self-praise.
