CEDEL2 participants:

CEDEL2 is the result of thousands of anonymous volunteers who generously participated online from different countries. A small group of them participated in situ at the Universidad de Granada during the oral recordings. Participants read an informed consent form first and participation was entirely voluntary. Ethics approval was granted by the Human Research Ethics Committee at the Universidad de Granada.We thank all participants for their help!

CEDEL2 data-collection collaborators:

Many Spanish teachers from all over the world (mainly the US, UK and Spain) helped in the data collection process. An international team of main collaborators participated in the coordination of the data collection of several subcorpora and/or translated the online forms into the participant’s mother tongue. We thank them all for their generous help and support!
