I have been looking deeply into my own financial coffers to determine just how 
much I can afford to reimburse my participants.  I have often seen 
advertisements offering volunteers US$10 for 30 minutes to an hour of their 
time to participate in studies of business decisions.  In other cases, 
volunteers are offered $40 and a picture of their brains for 20-40 minutes in 
an MRI.

But what is the going rate for reimbursing those who participate in studies of 
langauge learning, particularly those involving pre and post-testing in 
addition to periods of treatment? 

What do you find sufficient for reimbursing your participants?
