In the English Department of a university in Indonesia, the Intensive Course (IC) textbook plays a very important role in preparing pre-service teachers (PSTs) in their first year of undergraduate study. The textbook is the main learning resource for them because it compiles learning materials on all aspects of the English language, such as listening, reading, speaking, writing, grammar, and vocabulary. Although the textbook design aims to help PSTs and lecturers to access learning and teaching materials from the same resource, the textbook seems to pose challenges for both parties, especially for the PSTs. We have noticed from the textbook uses that the presentation of English oral communication was problematic. Many dialogs, for example, in the speaking sections, were written in a straight- forward way, with particular features of everyday English oral communication were underrepresented. The study presented in this paper, therefore, aims to examine how the textbook represents oral communication strategies, viz. strategies that help learners find ways to overcome particular communication breakdowns. Driven by a qualitative approach, data were collected mainly from the textbook, and analysed using a content analysis method. The findings of the study suggest that including oral communication strategies instruction into the textbook can provide PSTs with much opportunities to engage effectively in everyday use of English in particular given context in Indonesia. KEYWORDS: Oral Communication Strategies, Textbook Analysis, English Department, Intensive Course
