This exploratory study examines strategies of refusals in two groups of peninsular and Ecuadorian Spanish learners of Italian, attending University courses in Italy. The aim of the investigation is to explore the type, the order and the frequency of refusals and the role of transfer in situations characterized by different role relationships among interactants. Data was collected using a Discourse Completion Task and a retrospective interview. Results show that Ecuadorian learners sometimes transfer their L1 patterns into the L2. Outcomes will be discussed in light of studies on Politeness Theory.
