Language Lab

The purpose of a language lab is to involve students to actively participate in language learning exercises and get more practice than otherwise possible in a traditional classroom environment.

How much speaking practice each student gets during a 45-minute language class, depending on class size:

Class10 Student Class30 Student Class
Traditional Classroom~1 minute~21 minute
Classroom with language lab~11 minute~11 minute

With a language lab, all students in the class can speak simultaneously without distracting each other regardless of the class size. Without a language lab, in a class of more than 10 students, each student gets less than one minute of speaking practice.
