The current study investigates a possibility of accommodation of the male and a female subject to the different genders of the interviewers in the situation of telling narratives of personal experience. Conversational analysis was the primary method of col-lecting and analysis of the data. Four narratives of personal experience were collected in the course of four conversational interviews conducted by a female and a male interviewer. The time difference between the first two interviews and the second two interviews is four weeks. The interviews were recorded and transcribed. Intonation units were the criteria for transcription. The transcription fol-lowed vertical format of arrangement of turns and was done in wide standard notation. As the result of the study, three working hy-potheses were confirmed. 1) The analysis of narratives showed variability of pragmatic, prosodic and linguistic features in the stories of both participants told to the interviewers of the same gender (only men interaction and only women interaction); 2) It also revealed variability in a discourse of the stories that occurs due to accommodation of both participants to the gender of the interviewers of different genders; 3) Finally the study registered variability in nature of questions of the interviewers across gender. The study em-phasizes pragmatic importance to introduce speech act theory into the curriculums of ESL classrooms.
