Is English your first language?

Did you grow up in a monolingual English environment?

We are looking for English speakers...

whose very first language is English,
whose most fluent/comfortable language is English,
whose parents also spoke only English to them when they were growing up.

Is this you? Then, come participate in a language learning study!

What experiment is this?

Hi, I am Hyunah Ahn (Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Second Language Studies at UH Manoa). My doctoral dissertation is about how monolingual and bilingual speakers of English can use information sources differently and/or similarly as they process English sentences.

If your first language is English and you haven't been influenced by other languages as a child, please help me with my project. Your participation will help me answer my research questions and improve our understanding of first and second language acquisition.

What do participants do in the lab?

Participants read English sentences on a computer screen and answer simple questions.
Or they listen to some simple sentences and select pictures that match the sentences.
