Hello everyone, I'm doing a study on Internet among English language learners, and I was hoping some of the members of the community here would like to fill out a brief questionnaire. All the information will be kept confidential (I'm not asking for anything too personal), and it would be a big help to me if you could take a few minutes and give me your answers. You can post them here, or if you would like something more private, just pm me.

Thanks in advance to all of you who respond!
