Participants Needed for Paid Research Study @UMD

We invite you to participate in an interview session with Yongle Zhang, the Principal Investigator of an ongoing research project (see the paragraph below for details). Yongle is a Ph.D. candidate in Information Studies at the University of Maryland, College Park.

The research project aims to promote people’s access to information and resources in an English dominant environment (e.g., the United States) regardless of their language backgrounds. Through interviews and other activities with you as the participants, we hope to gain insights on technology design for quality life in a multilingual society.

We are interested in people of different language backgrounds participating in our study. Please review the following questions and select the scenario that you are more familiar with:

Scenario I

Do you speak any languages other than English?

How do you make language choices when communicating with others in everyday life?

Would you like to share your daily communication and information seeking experience with us?

Would you like to share your daily communication and language support experience with us?
