After the data was collected, the researchers analyzed the data by applying the conversation analysis with three concepts, namely data reduction, data display, and conclusion drawing or verifications. The result of data analysis found that convey messages properly required using politeness ways. Secondly, in carrying the learning process, teachers should be based on the rules and procedures for polite delivery content, language, and manners.
