About the Language Lab

The Language Laboratory is a vital multi-media resource that can aid you significantly in acquiring your target language.  The Lab now has 14 internet-connected computers for beginning language classes.  In addition, all computers are equipped with DVD/CD-ROM players as well as webcams so that students may practice their new language by conversing with other students around the world in their native language.

The lab units see their most intensive use in first-year instruction in German, Spanish, French, Japanese and Russian, although students from all levels of language instruction are encouraged to utilize the language lab facilities.  Each first-year class allots at least one hour weekly for lab practice. The department employs undergraduate language majors as lab attendants for about 35 open lab hours each week. This allows students to use the facility at their convenience and practice on their own. The facility is also used by foreign students studying English.

Students may use departmental computers for extra practice in language skills. The department continually acquires valuable new software for these purposes.
