The Closed Booth.
Hanson, Edwin M.
National Association of Language Laboratory Directors Newsletter, v3 n1 p12-17 Oct 1968
Seven reasons excerpted from "Language Laboratory Learning" (1960) by Fernand Marty are cited for a preference for individual rooms or closed booths to language laboratories with open booths. The author specifies additional psychological and acoustical advantages of the closed booth system. Weaknesses inherent in the open booth laboratory are also noted. (RL)
