Abstract

Dornyei (2007) and Richards (2003) list the following as typical characteristics of qualitative research. Firstly, it takes place in a natural setting, devoid of any manipulation. It is also concerned with gaining insights into the lived experiences of the participants and usually focuses on a small number of participants. In addition, it utilises an emergent research design which is flexible in nature and can evolve in tandem with the development of the study. Hence, it generates rather than tests hypotheses. Finally, it is fundamentally interpretive as the data obtained would be subjectively interpreted by the researcher.
