دعوت از فارسی‌ زبانان برای شرکت در یک تحقیق  در ارتباط با دو زبانگی

Farsi Speakers Needed for a Study on Bilingualism




We are looking for native speakers of Farsi who learned English as a second language before coming to Canada from Iran. We need volunteers, who have the equivalent English level competency of a grade of 7 or more on the IELTS Academic Module or an equivalent grade on another English proficiency test, and those whose English proficiency is evaluated as elementary. Participants must be right-handed with normal hearing and normal (or corrected to normal) vision.


The purpose of this study is to determine how bilingual speakers process words in a second language. Participants will wear an EEG cap and view words and non-words on a computer screen, in either Persian or English. Participants will also complete a demographics questionnaire.


140 Volunteers 16+ years of age are needed for a study on how the bilingual brain processes words from two languages.
