|I am a third-year BA English Language and Communications student at King's College London.
My final-year dissertation topic is culture in generic EFL Course Books.
I am particularly interest in EFL learners who are learning in their home
countries, and have written a survey (currently being piloted by MA students at
King's) which looks at learner motivation and attitude to British and American
culture in generic course books.
I am therefore looking for worldwide participants and would be very greatful if you would consider taking part.
I am looking for teachers who would be willing to use the survey as an
'authentic task', in a lesson, or, who would ask students if they would be interested in taking part individually.
If you need further information, or details would be happy to send the 'draft survey'. I am hoping to be in a position to send out the Final version of the survey by 18th February and, (as the results need to be analysed and the dissertation written up and handed in by the end of April), I would look to receive all replies by the 4th March
I will of course completely understand if you decide not to participate, and thank you for you time in reading this message.
