Searching for Respondents

Hello everybody,
My name is Dominique. I am a 24 year old student Business Communication at the Radboud University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands.
For one of our courses we have to conduct a research into Communication Styles. Our aim is to see how a English Native Speaker reviews an e-mail request of a non native speaker. In order to measure this, we have set up an online questionnaire ( ) We are looking for English respondents and we were wondering if you would be able to help us out.
If you have any questions regarding the research, do not hesitate to ask them.
Thank you for your time in advance.

You should to find Respondents from the social sites.

Well, General Discussions could be considered the social part of Sitepoint. :slight_smile:

I’ve completed the survey and it only took a few minutes.

I am a Native English Speaker (and a self-proclaimed Logophile) and the email message used in your study did not contain any of the ‘clues’ I often see that indicate its author is NOT a native English speaker. As I recall, there was only ONE awkward sentence structure that I noticed.

Granted, there are few (I dare say none) colloquial or vernacular phrases; which only masks any hint of the writer’s culture or geographic region.

First, thank you for filling in the questionnaire! In this study there are two different versions of the emails. One email is better than the other. I think you answered questions about the ‘correct’ one. Thesistools decides which version you will get. However, I can not say too much about it, because then people will be influenced by my answer before they fill in the questionnaire. I hope you understand this.

Kind regards,
