Dear colleagues:

I’m conducting a study on language learning (see below for recruitment message), and I’d like to ask for your help in forwarding the information to any students and colleagues who might be interested. The study isn’t language specific, so anyone 18 years or older can participate.

Thanks for your help!

Hello!

I’m writing to recruit participants to participate in a study that I’m conducting. The purpose of the study is to explore people’s abilities to deduce and learn language patterns in a new language.
 
To participate in the study, please follow this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BJSJ6VC
 
The study includes an audio and video component. You will need to be able to watch and listen to a short video in order to complete the study, so please make sure you are able to turn up the volume or use earphones when you participate.
 
The study involves answering multiple-choice questions about your background and attitudes about language, and then a short language test (in a language called “Ravenese”). You will be asked to try to figure out a language pattern first, and then to watch a short video tutorial that explains how the language works, before continuing on to another short language test. At the end, you will also be asked to volunteer to participate in a follow-up portion of the study and to provide your email address for this.
 
This survey is part of a research study conducted by Rémi A. van Compernolle (vancomp at cmu.edu) at Carnegie Mellon University. Participation is completely voluntary, and you must be at least 18 to participate. There is no compensation for participation in this study.

Thank you,
