The article presents a study on the use of Japanese interactional particles (IPs) for learners in student-teacher conversations. These interjections play a significant role in building interpersonal relationships. The IPs are used to indicate the relevance of the marked units in a conversation. These are essential in interpersonal conversation within the social environment, and the social status would vary in using IPs. The student-teacher communication is important because it is one of the social dynamic situation, and represents a social environment where the learners could encounter.
