Memo-writing and keeping a “methodological journal” (Charmaz 2014 p. 165), will help keep the participants’ voice clear in the process of becoming more analytical and starting an inductive journey out of the mass of data collected so far. Freewriting is the preferred way of achieving this, since the researcher already has some experience in this technique.
Mind maps and diagramming will be used to gain a bird's-eye view on the relationships between the data in the memos and the journal, in order to select the categories that seem to develop into major concepts in the analysis process. These will then enter the next stage of theory construction, allowing the researcher to conceptualise the topic and bring it forth into a congruent and original theoretical interpretation. An interpretive approach is preferred, to the alternative positivist type, as the author rather believes in the fluid, emergent character of life that grants space for an imaginative Weltanschauung.

Lots of lessons: cause & effect, comparisons, linking signals, relative clauses, presenting information, expressing emotions and grammar games, of course. We had more lessons on: intensifying adverbs and phrasal verbs, expressing various concepts such as addition, exception, restriction and ambiguity. Lately we started some exercises: likes/dislikes, frequency adverbs (twice), verb tenses, etc.
