I am looking for international couples to participate in a research study examining multicultural communication at home. If you live together with your partner, you are both non-native speakers of English, and if your mutual language of communication is mainly English, you are welcome to take part in this study.
The research material will be collected in your own home, where you will make short voice recordings according to instructions during one week. All material collected will be fully confidential and anonymised.
If you and your spouse are interested in taking part in the study, please send me an email with the following background information. Answer these six questions concerning both you AND your partner:
1. What is your sex and age? 2. Which country are you from? 3. Where do you live now (city and country)? 4. What is your first language (mother tongue)? 5. What other languages do you speak and to what extent? 6. How long have you been together?
I will contact you as soon as possible to settle a time for the recordings. If you have any questions concerning the study, please do not hesitate to ask me.
