About the ESL Lab
Seating up to 27 students, the lab uses Sony Virtuoso/Soloist, a digital language lab environment. Audio/video can be sent to each student while students work on screen or on paper. Students can work in pairs and groups. Instructors can monitor students' written and oral work and give immediate feedback. Digital files of any type, DVDs, audio CDs, and even VHS tapes can be used in the lab. The lab also has software for improving grammar, listening, pronunciation, and TOEFL skills.
Students in 022, 132, and 142 credit classes have a 50-minute lab per week. These labs focus on academic listening, note-taking, grammar, and vocabulary essential in college-level work. The lab has open hours Monday through Friday when students can work on assignments, do research, and practice English or other languages. We encourage all language students to use the lab for self-study. Check the lab schedule above for the open hours.
