Abstract
The article deals with the peculiarities of a dialogue between a researcher and a respondent within a focused group interview and a phenomenological interview. The distinctive cultural communicative experience allowing the solving of pedagogical problems is typical for qualitative research methods based on joint creative work of a teacher and his or her students. Research organization conditions assume solving of diagnostic as well as pedagogical problems and call for special training of the teacher-researcher. The article reviews the approaches needed for organization of such a research. The conclusion is made upon reasonability to utilize qualitative research methods in developing communicative culture during training of graduate students and postgraduate student teachers.
