Are you learning Ainu online? Then please consider participating in our academic research about this.
Attention Ainu language learners!
If you’re currently learning Ainu through online resources, we invite you to participate in our study on the effectiveness of these resources. The study involves answering a series of questions about your motivations for learning Ainu, how you found online resources for learning, how often you use them, and how effective you find them for various aspects of the language.
Participation in the study is completely voluntary, and all questions will be asked online, so you can participate from the comfort of your own home. You may also choose to remain completely anonymous.
By participating in this study, you will be contributing to our understanding of the effectiveness of online resources for learning Ainu, and helping to improve the quality of resources available to future learners.
Thank you for your participation, and we look forward to hearing from you!
