The findings of the research are now better supported with the generation of numbers to back narratives and vice versa, painting a fuller picture to portray to and convince the intended research audience. || Thirdly, it allows for a larger quantity and more complex questions to be answered, as the complement would balance out the limitations of both researches. Researcher would not be required to give up one for the other when faced with the selection of research paradigms or methodologies.
Research reliability was achieved by using his method as “observations are useful that they provide the researcher with the opportunity to collect large amount of rich data, the participant’s behavior and actions within a particular context” (Le, 2012, p.52). Mackey and Gass (2005, p.96) highlighted that commonly, the answers to questionnaires might be imprecise and unreliable. Hence, the main advantage of observing and collecting data was it enabled the researcher “see directly what people do without having to rely on what they say they do. Therefore, such data can provide a more objective account of events and behaviours than second-hand self-report data” (Dörnyei, 2007, p. 185). The lessons were filmed by the staffs in the centre.
These trends tend to occur when surveyors say similar answers and patterns will be found through these findings. Conducting only one type of the research gives one solid info, however having both is better and almost essential to having a complete collection of data. Qualitative research is going to provide you with the details and reasonings behind a certain issue. The same applies to quantitative, however it will give you this reasoning in number form. The details and reasonings gathered from quantitative can only explain so much.

According to Janesick (2000) qualitative research uses inductive because themes and patterns are generated from the collected data, field notes, documents and interviews. Thus, this makes qualitative research to be useful to gather grounded data. Moreover, Janesick also points out that qualitative researcher have open minds but not open minds because they formulate questions to guide the study and those questions are under constant revision during the study to suit the discussion and study.

However, researchers frequently now apply both methods in order to improve research. Poggenpoel et al. (2001) stated that the qualitative approach has its advantages, especially if the researcher aims to find out the nature of the events and the factors causing the problem. It deals with the question ‘why’ more than ‘how’ and enables the researcher to explain the course of events more effectively. Of course, qualitative design can benefit the quantitative approach in terms of fulfilling both purposes, such as determining the links between variables and explaining why a connection or its absence
The issue of quantitative and qualitative research approach has been discussed widely nowadays. Some people believe quantitative research approach is trustworthy than qualitative research approach. This essay will discuss the features of quantitative and qualitative research, and the reason why people believe quantitative research approach is trustworthy than qualitative research approach. Both quantitative and qualitative researches have been used as research approach recently. (What is the purpose of this para??
According to There are two main reasons why this mixed methods research is chosen for answering to the research question, including minimize the gap of missing data from quantitative or qualitative method and generating a better results of the research question more than one method. The first main reason of choosing mixed methods research is that multiple methods research can minimize the gap of missing data from qualitative and quantitative methods approaches. As McLaughlin (1991) explains in his paper that in most cases, researchers use qualitative research approach to discover some findings after conducting quantitative research. Some researchers deploy quantitative method after conducting qualitative method research, prior to complete with gaps of data analysis (McLaughlin, 1991, pp.303-304). Johnson and Onwuegbuzie (2007) (as cited in Connelly (2009) claims that mixed methods approach provides a room for researchers to be able to answer to more complex research questions because they use both methods for the survey research (Connelly, 2009,
