Newspapers are a medium that spreads awareness about current day events; based on which individuals make decisions. The current study focuses on decisions made by individuals - in regard to the Foreign Language Effect (FLE) - in their day-to-day life. Literature around FLE make note of an emotional-rational response among participants and we wanted to cross check those predictions in real life situations with the use of newspaper articles. Bilinguals will be used to examine the participants response to risk analysis on the event of motor vehicle accidents. This will be done with the help of 3 articles in English on the aforementioned theme. The study will analyze if decisions made by an individual after reading the article in English will differ based on their first language. The Independent Variable will be the Native Language and the Dependent Variable will be the Response Provided. We predict that individuals whose foreign/second language is English will respond in a risk aversive manner. As there are comparatively fewer research papers on FLE and motor accidents with a participant pool of those between 18 to 25 years, this paper will add to pre-existing research and can be a base from which future researchers can build on.
