Abstract: Requesting, a highly imposing act may require a lot of redressive efforts to bridge the gap between speaker and hearer even in an intracultural communication, let alone cross cultural communication. Many problems are likely to arise if the requesters are not tactful. However, the tactful requestive strategies are different from culture to culture. One can not use his/her own reference of cultural values, norms and etiquettes to impose on the others. Consequently, this has created many problems in socio-cultural interaction and blocked the learners’ appropriateness in communicative competence. This suggests a cross cultural study of one of the most sensitive communicative acts in English and Vietnamese, that is requesting. It is hoped that the research will help avoid, or at least, reduce cultural conflicts in requesting in English and Vietnamese cross- cultural communication.
