Jackie -- one of the original founders of this group - needs our help to finish their dissertation. If you can, please consider contacting Jackie at
if you can assist. Thanks!
Here are the project details:
Hi! My name is Jackie Young. I was one of the unoffical co-founders/organizers of this group back in 2007. I'm the person who was wearing the black shirt on the profile picture. I have a huge favor to ask: I'm currently trying to finish up my dissertation, but to make it at all possible, I will need 15~20 more American learners of Mandarin Chinese as a second language with no less than intermediate proficiency level. Participants will need to be able to look at pictures and video clips and provide me with general descriptions of what those pix and clips are about; thus, they will definitely need to feel comfortable using Mandarin but not necessarily fluent in it. As a token of my appreciation, I'm more than happy to provide my service when appropriate (I have taught linguistics and Chinese for many years at UGA and had also taught Chinese at some private language institutes in ATL and some heritage programs).
