Topic Playing WoW Helps You Learn English? What do you think?
Hi there, I’m a gamer like you, I play on the Aszune server as an active member of the guild Been There Done That and I’m online most days. But I’m also a student studying my Masters degree in Applied Linguistics at Newcastle University in the UK.
I’m researching online gaming and language learning, and I’d really like to know what non-native English speaking online gamers think about this topic. Your views are really important to me and could help future developments. So...
If you play on the Aszune server and English is not your first language, please complete my short questionnaire about World of Warcraft and language learning. Please also encourage your friends and guildies to complete it too. If you are a guild master on Aszune, please could you make your guild aware of this survey, as the more responses the better.
- The survey does not ask for personal details, you can use a fake avatar name and remain totally anonymous. The survey is hosted by a secure site that is often used by researchers (as I gamer I know how suspicious we all are of messages with links to websites, but I assure you this is genuine research and does not record any personal information).
- As a thank you for completing the survey, I am going to give away 5,000 of my hard-earned WoW gold to two of you chosen randomly, and I am also happy to let you all read my final report when it is ready :)
Many thanks for your help, and being a part of this interesting and important research. Please feel free to contact me in game at any time if you have any further questions.
