RUNNING A LANGUAGE LABORATORY.
REES, ALUN L.W.
THIS ARTICLE DESCRIBES THE LANGUAGE LABORATORY AT THE NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF TRUJILLO AS IT IS USED IN THE FIVE-YEAR ENGLISH TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM. THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF THIS COURSE ARE INTENSIVE, BASED ON A STUDY OF ENGLISH USING LADO-FRIES MATERIALS (FOR LATIN AMERICAN LEARNERS) WHICH REQUIRE FIVE HOURS OF CLASSWORK A WEEK SUPPLEMENTED BY FIVE HOURS IN THE LANGUAGE LAB. CLASSES ARE SCHEDULED BY THE HOUR WITH DIFFERENT MONITORS FOR THE VARIOUS GROUPS. A REGULAR 50-MINUTE SESSION BEGINS WITH A FREE CONVERSATION WARM-UP, AFTER WHICH BOOKS AND OTHER STUDENT PARAPHERNALIA ARE REMOVED BEFORE DRILLS BEGIN. A SHORT BREAK AFTER THE FIRST 25 MINUTES (FOR ROLL CALL) IS FOLLOWED BY A SHORT LANGUAGE GAME AND FURTHER DRILLS. THE FOUR-PHASE DRILLS (WHICH ACCOMPANY THE LADO-FRIES MATERIALS) OFFER A VARIETY OF ORAL WORK AND RANGE OF VOICES. STUDENTS ARE STRICTLY MONITORED BY A TEACHER LISTENING IN AND STRUCTURAL ERRORS AND CARELESS PRONUNCIATION ARE CORRECTED ON THE SPOT. MORE FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEMS ARE NOTED ON SLIPS AND SENT TO THE CLASSROOM TEACHERS. A PRACTICAL DISCUSSION OF THE CARE AND CATALOGING OF THE TAPES CONCLUDES THE PAPER. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN "LENGUAJE Y CIENCIAS," NUMBER 27, MARCH 1968, PUBLISHED BY THE UNIVERSIDAD NACIONAL DE TRUJILLO, IN TRUJILLO, PERU. (AMM)
