This study examines communication strategies resulting from a project based on presentation in English for university class at Lampung University. An oral presentation session consisting of individual presentation session, question and answer session, and summary session was conducted by the English lecturer as part of project based on learning program. Twenty first-year students enrolled in the course were taken as sample for the research. The presentations were recorded, transcribed, and coded according to communication strategy classification. The results show that from 12 communication strategy classifications, nine types of communication strategies were identified. These strategies were grouped into high frequency strategies, mid frequency strategies, and low frequency strategies. The distributions of the strategies identified are high frequency strategies including code switching (36.28%), time-gaining strategies (30.37%), and appeal for help (16.03%), mid frequency strategies including non-linguistic signal (6.32%) and literal translation (4.64%), and low frequency strategies including message abandonment (2.53%), topic avoidance (2.11%), circumlocution (0.84%), and approximation (0.84%), and non-existence strategies (use of all purpose words, word coinage, and foreignizing)
