The Language Laboratory: Hardware for Hard Times.
Turner, E. Daymond, Jr.
Noting that foreign language requirements have been abolished, reduced, or modified between 1966 and 1971 in over 45 percent of the B.A. degree-granting institutions in the United States, the author probes into the current status and uses of the language laboratory. It is suggested that the widespread decline in language enrollments is due in large measure to a misunderstanding of the function and potential of the language laboratory. Ways in which the laboratory may contribute to the revitalization of language instruction are elaborated. (RL)
