This article addresses the question, "Does the introduction of a language laboratory improve the functioning of a given teaching method?" Four experiments with the language laboratory are described and analyzed: the Keating and Lorge experiments in New York, the Jalling experiment in Sweden, and the Freedman experiment in Great Britain. These experiments were carried out differently and their results cannot, therefore, be compared. It must be concluded that the language laboratory is useful for some areas of study, for some students, and when used by some teachers. (AM)
