Participants recruiting -- Free Mandarin tutorial provided!

Recommended Posts

Yuniverse

I am a linguistic student currently looking for participants (who have to be 1) English-native speakers; 2) between 18-32 years old) for my dissertation regarding Mandarin tones. The experiment lasts around 15-20 minutes, including two imitation tasks about some Chinese pseudo words written in Pinyin. It will be conducted online. You will be provided with a free Mandarin tutorial for your participation. Any other questions concerning your studies are also welcome in your future Mandarin learning process! 

 

If you are interested and require for more information, please send an email to [email protected]

 

Thank you!

Hi @Yuniverse Yanyu, is the Mandarin-speaking level of the volunteers important?

Well that rules me out, then. 

What's the rationale behind excluding older people, if I might ask?

Aww sorry for that. This age range is based on some theories assuming that people at different age demonstrate different learnabilities. Experiment participants need to be controlled within similar traits somehow. But thank you for your reply! :)

She raised the age limit and I ended up participating in this experiment. Took around ten minutes, mainly reading tone pairs of made up words.

 

Please let us know what you discovered!

I've also done this.  Really does take less than ten minutes.
