What does it take to successfully master a foreign language? This survey, being carried out by a team of researchers from the Institute of Applied Linguistics, University of Warsaw, aims to better understand how individual traits help effectively learn a second language during online vs face-to-face courses. The results will have important practical implications for language teachers and learners, identifying the most important positive personality traits that should be fostered to maximise language learning success.
The project is preregistered and has received IRB (research ethics) approval. The study takes around 17 minutes to complete; most of the items are of the quick, multiple-choice type. The responses are fully anonymous, and the results will only be used for research purposes.
