I am writing to let you know about an opportunity to participate in a research study about the perceived benefits of learning Spanish as a foreign language. This study is being conducted by María Teresa Martínez García at the University of Utah Asia Campus and Enrique Martínez García, at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

This study will investigate what are the perceived economic benefits of learning Spanish around the world. And, in order to do so, you will be asked to complete an online questionnaire (completely anonymous) that asks questions regarding your knowledge of languages (Spanish, specifically) and also how you perceive your knowledge of Spanish has helped (or not) with your job and job prospects.

This study is looking for learners of Spanish as a second/foreign language, independently of their native language or their level of proficiency in Spanish.

If you meet the requirements and agree to collaborate in this study, these are the links to the questionnaire (choose one):

English version (in case you feel more comfortable completing it in English):
