Arabic students: Make $25, Participate in Research

The University of Maryland Center for Advanced Study of Language (CASL) is interested in studying how learners of Arabic perceive speech sounds in Arabic.  We are looking for college students who are currently taking  or have recently completed Arabic courses at the beginning or intermediate level to participate in a study.  Participants should be enrolled or have recently completed at least one year of Arabic,  be at least 18 years of age, not be native  or heritage speakers of Arabic, and not have  a known history of speech language pathology or hearing loss.
They will participate in 1 session lasting  on average 1.5 hours.  The experiment will involve filling out a language history questionnaire and  transcription of a series of Arabic words and non-words that will be played for participants.  Participants will be paid $25 upon completion of the task, with two chances to win a $50 iTunes gift card.  If interested, please send an email to
