Preference in the use of languages among bilingual speakers
Thank you for your interest in this survey. We are a group of UCLA bilingual students wishing to study the preference of language within UCLA bilingual/multilingual students.

For clarification, we see “fluency in both/multiple languages” as a fundamental part of bilingualism/multilingualism.

For example, a student who regularly discuss academic reading material in class using English and speaking Spanish to their parents on the phone daily would be considered bilingual, but a student who have taken French class in highschool but never achieved confident fluency would not be considered as bilingual in this study. We ask you to evaluate your own cases and answer the following questions as honest as possible.

Hang in there! It’s really short, and prizes await at the end!
