Vietnamese langauge maintenance survey

We need at least 300 people with Vietnamese heritage to answer a questionnaire about Vietnamese language maintenance. We are interested in hearing from people with Vietnamese heritage who speak Vietnamese, Vietnamese and English, English only, or other languages. The VietSpeech questionnaire will take about 20-30 minutes to complete.

Please share this link with anyone you know who has Vietnamese heritage, lives in Australia and is over 18 https://www.research.net/r/VietSpeech

The research has ethical approval. The findings of this project will provide useful information to the Vietnamese-Australian community, educators, speech pathologists, and policy makers about supporting language maintenance.

This VietSpeech study is funded by an Australian Research Council Discovery Grant and conducted through Charles Sturt University. More details about the project are here: https://www.csu.edu.au/research/vietspeech/overview

We plan to have a Vietnamese version of the questionnaire available in the next few weeks, so please let us know if you are interested in accessing that version.

Thank you for completing the questionnaire (if you are eligible) and for sharing the link with others who may be interested.
