This project attempts to address the problems that Turkish university students face in order to better understand the effects of lacking crucial communicative competence knowledge of English, particularly strategic competence, in their EFL courses at a university preparatory school in Istanbul, Turkey. The focus of the study is on advanced level students, for whom grammatical competence is less of an issue. The scope of the study is limited to considering sociolinguistic competence and how strategic competence comes into play in situations where sociolinguistic competence may be insufficient. The researcher not only aims to consider the importance of sufficient sociolinguistic and strategic competence in a variety of situations but also discusses some ways to address these issues from a pedagogical standpoint. The findings may have potential implications for research on classroom instruction, materials design, and teacher preparation. Data was collected by means of questionnaires and classroom observations.
