  3. Would you be interested in taking a course on how to learn English using the Internet? Suppose SMU offered a course on "How to Learn English With the Internet." This course would be offered during the semester break for four weeks. Instructor and students would meet four times a weeks, two hours a day (total: 32 hours of instruction). Each day the class would spend one hour in a classroom (learning chat dialogs, email skills, etc.), and one hour in the computer lab. Would you be interested in taking this course?

    Yes. Sounds like a good idea.
    Yes. But it would depend on how much it costs.
    Yes. But only if it was fun.
    Yes. But only if men could join the course too.
    Maybe? But it would depend on the content.
    No. I would not be interested.
    No. I'm too busy.
    No. I don't like computers.
    No. I have to go back to my home town.

    Which month would you prefer to take this course (pick one)?

    What time would you prefer to take this course (write your time preference e.g., 9-11, 10-12, 1-3, 2-4, 6-8)?

  4. How much money would you be willing to pay for this 4-week course?

    The same as other courses offered by SMU during the
          semester break.
    I would be willing to pay a little more, because we get
          to use the computer, and it sounds interesting.
    I'm not sure. It would depend on what others thought about
          the course after they took it. If they thought it was good, I
          would pay the regular rate.
    Nothing! Why should I pay. I can use the Internet for Free.
    OTHER: Write down how much you would  be willing to pay
          for this 4-week course.

  5. What do you think of the idea of offering this course FREE for one week. Then, if students who signed up liked it, and wanted to continue, they would then pay the total fee?

    I don't think it should be offered free. People should pay for
          it first just like any other course.
    Sounds like a great idea. I would sign up!
    If I liked the course, I would pay after one week.
    Good idea, but after one week, I would probably just quit.
    I'm not interested in this course even if it' was offered
          completely free.
    OTHER: (write comments) 

IMPORTANT: It is very important that you fill in your Name, ID#, and MY# before you press "submit."
