Query:   Dear Madam/ Sir,

I made a survey concerning apology strategies for the American native
English speakers so as to find out the strategies that they use in apologies
and to compare them with the strategies that Iraqi EFL University students
use when they express their apologies.

Therefore I am looking for native speakers of English in America to
participate in this short questionnaire.

Note: the age of the testees should be over sixteen.

Here is the link for my survey:
