Subject: [Edling] Invitation to Participate in an SLA Survey

Dear Colleague,

This letter invites you to participate in a short (20 minute) survey of the content of courses titled Second Language Acquisition.

If you previously taught or are currently teaching a Second Language Acquisition (SLA) course at either the graduate or undergraduate level anywhere in the world, you are invited to participate in a survey entitled ?The Nature of Second Language Acquisition Courses?.  The study is being conducted by Elaine K. Horwitz and Hayriye Kayi-Aydar of the University of Texas at Austin, Foreign Language Education Program.

The purpose of this study is to understand the content of Second Language Acquisition (SLA) courses offered in different programs and provide an empirically-based foundation for future development of these courses. Your participation in this survey will contribute to a better understanding of what many are already doing and offer guidance in future decisions.

If you volunteer to participate in this study, please click on the following link to complete the on-line survey, which should take no longer than 20 minutes to complete. Further information about the study is available on the survey website.

If you have any questions or would like us to contact another person from your institution, please send an email to hkayi at<> You may also request a hard copy of the survey instrument from the contact information above.

Please feel free to forward this message to your colleagues who might be interested in participating.

Thank you.

Elaine K. Horwitz,
Hayriye Kayi-Aydar
