Dear language teachers,

My name is Alba, and I am a PhD candidate in Applied Linguistics. I am conducting a study on the experience of language teaching during the COVID-19 pandemic and the use, or lack thereof, of mindfulness practices (e.g., breathing, meditation, relaxation techniques) in teaching. Please consider taking part in a 10- to 15-minute survey on the topic. If you decide to take part in the study, you can find the survey here: Feel free to pass the survey on to other language teachers and instructors.

The survey is completely anonymous, and your participation is completely voluntary. At the end of the survey, you will be asked if you would like to take part in a follow-up interview and/or a consultation session to review a set of mindful techniques for language learning. If you are willing to do so, you will be asked to provide your email address.

This study has been approved by the University of Calgary Conjoint Faculties Research Ethics Board (REB20-1832) and my supervisors, Dr. Mary O’Brien ( and Dr. Angela George (

Thank you.
