In the light of gender language analysis, this qualitative inquiry explored the comparison of male and female language learners, the ways on how male and female language learners present their ideas, and the insights of these learners on the power of language to represent a gender. Seven SHS students in a certain public school were interviewed while another seven for the focus group discussion. Corpus-based analysis, in- depth interview, focus group discussion, transcription translation, intensive review of related literature and thematic analysis were used to gather and validate data. Differences in linguistic features such as intensifiers, tag questions, rising questions on declarative, and adjectives were found in the essays. It was also found out that male learners are direct, present brief and concise ideas, and use personal experiences in presenting their ideas, however, female learners use lengthy sentences, emotional, address the subjects personally, and poetic in expressing their thoughts. Moreover, male learners had viewed that language must be used neutrally, language has a power to support a stand and a form of one’s expression. Nevertheless, female learners perceived that language rejected the idea of gender-bias, frees oneself, and believed that gender fairness should be promoted in language use. Further it was recommended to know the different writing styles of our students most especially that gender was one of the factors to be considered in the written output of our students
