Participate in a vowel perception study!

Your information will be held confidentially.

Native Japanese, Korean, and Mandarin speakers are needed for a speech perception study at the University of Melbourne's School of Languages and Linguistics. The study has been extended to run until July 6 and will take around 30 minutes to complete.

Results will tell participants how well they can hear the difference between two similar, but distinct English vowels. It may uncover an area of need, or may confirm the benefit of their previous studies.
