Abstract: The aim of the present article is to describe ethnography as a qualitative approach frequently applied in foreign language acquisition research (Pollard, 1985; Smith, 1992; Robinson-Stuart and Nocon, 1996). Reviews of two studies having used ethnographic techniques are presented in the paper to highlight the theoretical background for such an investigative method. The first study discusses issues about participant observation, while the second depicts the language learner in the role of the ethnographer. The paper also tries to throw light on the various tasks of the e thnographer as well as the values (emic and holistic view) and limitations (the insider/outsider dilemma) of ethnography.
