To support the language classes, the Adult Center maintains a language lab. With a computer and headset-microphone, the student can learn a language the natural way by immersing in the language spoken by a native speaker and following the language through images, sound and text. The programs provide practice in listening, reading and spelling.
The lab is open: Monday 10:00 am - 3:00 pm Wednesday 10:00 am - 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm Check the schedule for the quarter, to confirm exact hours each day.
Since there is a limited number of licenses for each language, there may be circumstances when the lab supervisor will request that the student make a specific appointment to use the lab. However, in general, students will be able to drop-in any time during lab hours to practice the language they are studying. The languages available to use include English as a Second Language, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian, and Spanish.
