The Modern Language Department has a multimedia language laboratory located in 207 Acker Science Center.  The language laboratory is utilized by the professors at least one class meeting a week. In some upper level courses, the laboratory is used more frequently or exclusively, depending on the course needs.

The language laboratory houses 27 student computers and two main computer consoles used by the instructor. The lab also has a printer, which is used by language students for language courses only. The lab is available during afternoon and evening hours, depending on the student worker assigned to the lab. Hours of operation are posted on the windows of both doors to Acker 207.

The use of the language lab is limited to students currently enrolled in language classes in the Modern Language Department.  Language majors and faculty in the department may also utilize the lab.

Students use the computers during class meetings for a variety of activities, such as viewing videos or clips, listening exercises, recording speaking samples, writing compositions, and practicing lesson concepts through chosen Internet activities.
