The purpose of this study is to examine how Javanese English learners respond to complement tactics (JLE). Discourse completion tasks (DCT) were used to collect data from 25 JLE. In addition, answers to compliment tactics in Javanese were elicited from 25 native Javanese speakers (NJ) to establish a baseline for how their Javanese strategies influence JLE's strategies. The complement to response techniques was investigated using Yu's modified response taxonomy (2004). The findings demonstrate that both JLE and J.N. employ the standard acceptance method, which includes appreciation tokens, agreement, downgrade, query, transfer, return, transfer, and a variety of sub-strategies. Furthermore, the data suggest that JLE's praise responses may reflect the impact of Javanese culture on their English usage. Similarly, global change has altered Javanese natives' complement response tactics, with J.N. appearing to respond to compliments in ways that are not constrained by Javanese cultural standards.
