EARN £55 BY TAKING PART IN AN INTERESTING SPEECH STUDY
We need 20 pairs of volunteers to take part in a series of speech
These involve doing a variety of tasks: a 'spot the difference' game,
picture naming and sentence reading.
The study is split into 5 sessions each lasting between 45mins and 1hr
For sessions 1 and 2, you and a friend will be recorded while trying
to resolve a 'spot the difference' task, in which you have to find
differences between two pictures.
You will attend session 3 by yourself. The task is the same as in the
first two sessions but this time you will be recorded talking to a
stranger about 3 pictures.
In sessions 4 and 5, you will be recorded by yourself and you will be
asked to name pictures and read sentences that appear on a computer
screen in front of you.
