Our Language Learning Facilities

We have a 19 station computer lab dedicated to foreign language study. Every student has at least 45 minutes per week in the lab. Besides work on the worldwide web, students use the Rosetta Stone program at every level. We also have a 20 carrel analog lab where students can practice oral and listening skills while being monitered by the teacher at a main console. Students can work in paired groups, receive feedback from the teacher as they work or record work for evaluation by the teacher at a later date. All AP language tests are given in this lab.

Techology in the Foreign Language Classroom

The presence of laptops and SmartBoards in all US classrooms has lead to many uses of online resources
