So, the Erasmus students thing was a complete disaster. Only two people showed up, and that's obviously not enough for a research. As I can't write on my paper's conclusions that 'students are dickheads', I'll need to to find an alternative way to get my data.

(I'm presenting this at a conference, my abstract says explicitly that there will be survey results so there's no changing part of my research now)

So, I was brainstorming with my advisor on e-mail and LJ came up. I'd rather be there to monitor participants, but as we think about a different solution I might as well test the waters here.

The survey involves watching two videos and answering a few questions about it, including two fill-the-gaps exercises. With yesterday's kids it took about a half hour, most of the time goes watching the videos. If you'd be willing to help (but only if you're sure you have the time for it) drop me a comment.


I wish I could say this is the last time I do research with actual people, but I'm a damn sociolinguist *headdesk*
