Help with research! – short survey and snowball sample

Calling all L2 teachers, L2 teacher educators, Second Language Acquisition researchers, and policymakers working in the field of L2 education: please take a minute to help with this short on-line survey. Completely anonymous.

 

From: Ernesto Macaro, Emeritus Professor of Applied Linguistics & Robert Woore, Associate Professor in Applied Linguistics, University of Oxford Department of Education.

Dear friends and colleagues,

We are currently working on a completely revised edition of ‘Debates in Modern Languages Education’, published by Routledge.  To make sure the book captures the real debates that are going on the field of learning and teaching second languages (L2), we are doing a small piece of research to elicit stakeholders’ views on this topic.

We are emailing you as L2 teachers, L2 teacher educators, Second Language Acquisition researchers and policymakers working in the field of L2 education.  We hope that you will be willing to complete a short on-line survey for us.  It will ask for a bit of background information about yourself, then ask for your view on a range of debates in the field of L2 learning and teaching.  We think it will take about 15 minutes to complete.  We would be very grateful for your help.

Please click on the link below, or copy and paste it into your browser, to access the survey:

Additionally, we want to use snowball sampling, to help us get the views of as wide a range of stakeholders as possible all around the world.

Therefore, we would be really grateful if you could forward this email to as many other L2 teachers, teacher educators, researchers and policy makers as possible, asking them to help out.

The survey is completely anonymous.

With many thanks in advance for your help,
