You have been asked to put together a Compliance Board Report that you can fill in on a quarterly basis and then present to the Board of Directors.
Prepare a short report “template” that you can regularly update with relevant information, charts, headings, etc. (you do not need to make these, just explain the concepts behind them). Think high level as well as utilization of metrics. Use some insights from the reading material and your guest lecturer as a guide.
Would your decisions made in a foreign language be the same as in your native tongue? While many would undoubtedly say yes, the opposite is in fact true. Globally proven by many, the FLE opposes the notion that a person would make the same choice regardless of the language the question was presented in. In fact, thinking in a foreign language is known to reduce decision-making biases, allowing people to make more rational decisions. A foreign language is defined as a language that is not spoken in one’s native country, usually studied in classroom setting. While the naïve view is that bilinguals are those who can speak two languages with native-like fluency, this “balanced” bilingualism is often hard to achieve. Therefore, in this proposal, bilinguals are referred as having a dominant native tongue, and a second language that can be spoken with certain effort. Research Topic I would like to investigate if this FLE extends to bilinguals whose second language is not considered a foreign language in particularly two domains: risk-taking and moral issues. More specifically, whether FLE would be present in English-Chinese speakers in Singapore. The effects of language dominance on decision-making will also be studied. The research questions are as follows: (1) Does foreign-language effect only apply if their second language is a foreign language? (2) Does language dominance play a role in the decision-making of a bilingual? Rationale The bilingual education policy was implemented in Singapore in 1966, requiring every student to study the English language and his respective mother tongue, mainly Mandarin, Tamil or Malay. However, due to the different races in Singapore, English has easily dominated our daily lives as a common ground for communication. This has resulted in a stark difference in proficiencies of both languages, with many sidelining their mother tongues.>GET ANSWER
