    Dear Friends and Colleagues,

    I hope my message finds you safe and well in these uncertain times.

    We are running an important global study of how individual traits influence the effectiveness of online and face-to-face second/foreign language classes. If you know students who are currently enrolled in or have recently completed a language course (either remotely or face-to-face), or instructors teaching such courses, could you please forward the link: https://L2grit.ils.uw.edu.pl 🙏🏻 It would be wonderful if more-as well as more diverse-settings and students were represented.

    The project is preregistered, has received IRB approval (ethics clearance), and only takes 16-17 minutes to complete. Participation is fully anonymous. As in the case of our previous projects, the subsequent results will be made public in open access. (E.g., articles detailing findings from our earlier global study on emergency remote teaching can be read at https://schoolclosure.ils.uw.edu.pl/publications/; more are in the pipeline, while https://doi.org/10.4324/9781003087953-8 and https://doi.org/10.1017/S0261444820000580 detail the impact of peer interactions on study-abroad SLA investigated using social network analysis.)


    Have a good end of the calendar year and an even better start to 2022!

    Best regards,

    -Mike
