Sanako-Tandberg Educational: Can You Hear Me Now? The Advantages of a Self-Contained Language Lab Environment for Second Language Learning

In this 50-minute session, participants will discuss the ways in which a self-contained digital language lab is an invaluable resource for English and second language learners. In the lab environment, the notions of "real-time interaction" and "real-time correction" come to life as students are able to simulate the authentic conditions of the everyday conversations typical of life in the target culture. Under the supervision of their teacher, who fits the linguistic category of a "sympathetic listener", they are able to take risks and make the mistakes necessary to improving their fluency in the target language. The ability of the teacher to simultaneously record students and correct their mistakes provides students with the immediate feedback they need to improve their learning.
