Ideally, when having a conversation, people are not trying to confuse, trick, or withhold relevant information from each other. Therefore, they should provide an appropriate amount of information, tell the truth, be relevant, and try to be as clear as they can. In this case, the speaker conveys his intention, and at the same time the listener receives it. Related to this, the speaker and the listener involved in the conversation have to speak cooperatively and mutually accept one another to be understood in a particular way. Otherwise, it can lead to misinterpretation. Therefore, people should obey the principle to enhance effective communication proposed by Paul Grice. But in the everyday conversation, people do not always applying the rules of Grice‟s maxims all the time. Because every conversation should be unique and based on the contextual background where the conversation take place, either from the perspective of society or culture. Some cultures in the world have different way in practicing their way of communication. It shows how Gricean maxim could be interpreted and exercised differently by following the unique standard of communication in a certain society. The researcher would like to see if the debating society would also have a unique standard of communication or not, especially in the way how this society conduct their communication activity in an English debate competition.
