Limiting My Target Population

After reading a little about intercultural communication and qualitative methods, I have decided to limit my target population. I started with a wide net: American EFL instructors who teach or have taught abroad in countries where English is not the official or dominant language.

I have decided to limit this population to instructors who teach or have taught high school students or older as the learners will have some developing or developed concept of native culture and "foreign" culture. As I read more of the literature, I will be able to rephrase this in much clearer and more appropriate terminology with sufficient evidence to back up my reasoning.

I believe this will not be the last time I will adjust my target population.
