The present study sheds some light on the conversation as an optimal form of communication. Also, it tries to illustrate Iraqi EFL learners’ aptitude for producing conversation and specifying the errors types committed by them in its progression. To accomplish these purposes, it is hypothesized that the learners may face formidable problems in sharing their experiences with each other and are unable to keep a conversation going. In the face of such problems, a sample of (50) learners is selected to a diagnostic test administration. The subjects are at the Fourth year, Department of English, College of Education for Humanities, University of Babylon. Data analysis has proved that the leaners encounter more difficulty on the production level than the recognition one. This manifestation is manifested itself in the number of the learners’ correct responses as compared with their incorrect ones on both levels.
