This study aims to identify the vocabulary and expressions used by Korean native speakers for achievement communication strategies. These vocabulary and expressions are essential for the teaching of achievement strategies to learners of Korean. There are many previous studies related to communication strategies, however, very few have examined the actual vocabulary and expressions required for achievement strategies. Moreover, the vocabulary and expressions presented in these studies are based on the communication strategies suggested for learners of Korean, rather than those actually used by native speakers. Word guessing games, by Korean native speakers on a Korean television program, were transcribed and analysed to identify many vocabulary and expressions previously not discussed. The analysis also presents several implications for teaching. First, there are some discrepancies between the vocabulary and expressions suggested by the previous studies and those actually used by native speakers. Second, the grammar patterns used for achievement strategies are very easy to learn even for learners with no more than 100 contact hours. Third, many vocabulary used for achievement strategies are not included in the basic vocabulary recommended in the field of Korean language education.
