From this factor, the writer is interested to know what types of thanking strategies which Chinese Indonesian male and female students as the speakers choose to express the gratitude expressions when they receive the act of kindness (receiving a favor, getting a compliment and getting a suggestion) from their peers. The data of this study are taken from the structured interview distributed to forty respondents which consist of twenty Chinese Indonesian male students and twenty Chinese Indonesian female students of the Faculty of Art and Design in Petra Christian University. The data got are analyzed based on the eight strategies of thanking proposed by Haverkate (1984).

Another two strategies mostly used by the students are strategy 1, thanking somebody explicitly and strategy 4, expressing appreciation of the act. Moreover, both of male and female rarely use strategy 5 (acknowledging a debt of gratitude) and strategy 2 (expressing gratitude) which males do not use this strategy at all.
