Hi! Are you a ‘wai guo ren’ learning Chinese? My name is Sam Billing, and I am a research student at Nankai University in Tianjin, China. I am doing a research project (for my graduate thesis) on motivation and learning strategies in learning Chinese. A big part of the project is the data provided those who would be willing to fill out the survey entitled “Individual Differences in Language Learning”. Would you mind taking 20-30 minutes of your time to complete this on-line survey? I am very interested in knowing more about your Chinese learning experience.
If you fill out the survey and include your email address on that item, then I can provide you with the results of the survey once the responses are tabulated, and show you where you stand compared to other learners of Chinese in the areas of learning motivation, language learning beliefs, and strategies use. In addition, if you reside in Tianjin, each participant will receive a 15 yuan gift certificate from Starbucks as a gesture of appreciation. BTW, all results are totally anonymous and the online survey service is totally secure.
