Survey: language students’ lives, emotions, and well-being

Are you a language student in a U.S. institution at the college level?

If you are, I truly hope you can participate in this study since your views are critical for understanding your language needs. If you are interested in participating, please read below to have more information about the current study.

Context and purpose of this study:

Recently, universities and community colleges have increased attention to the importance of students’ well-being through multiple communication channels such as emails, newsletters, workshops, meetings, or general announcements. In addition, research in this area shows that students suffer from stress and anxiety due to the pandemic and different aspects of their personal lives, such as losing relatives or friends. The purpose of this study is threefold:

  1. First, to identify language students enrolled at a United States institution so language teachers can understand their needs.
  2. Identify emotions and well-being issues affecting language learning and students’ language success at their United States institutions.
    3.   To offer general recommendations to high-level administrators based on language students’ perceptions to help L2 development in language programs.

Your Participation. If you agree to participate, you will be asked to complete an online survey. The survey is anonymous, and it will take about 10-15 minutes to complete.

You will be given allowed to provide informed consent at the beginning of the survey.

Here is a copy of the consent form for your records.
