On the clear understanding that you will communicate your results to the other members of your group before the end of Week 1 of Summer Term, you have my permission as supervisor to delay your return to York until the start of Week 3 of Summer Term.
Woohoo! So I now have official permission to have an extended Easter holiday. 4 weeks in Japan, 3 weeks in Singapore. And since my target participant group for my project is now Singaporeans (early bilinguals) once more, I will definitely be able to collect my data.
Being the rule-abiding person that I am, I’d actually booked my air tickets before even thinking of asking for permission, so here’re the dates I’ll be back.
16 Mar – 28 Mar – Singapore
29 Mar – 27 Apr – Japan
28 Apr – 4 May – Singapore
