  2. Screen with projector, DVD player, scanner, monitors with video tape players;

  4. Sanako 1200 (a software program which language professors can use to administer oral, audio and written exercises and exams to each individual student)

      With Sanako 1200, the lab is available for your students to:

      2. listen to a digital audio recording; and to
      3. work individually, in pairs or in groups;

        It also enables professors to talk and listen to their students, and to monitor what their students are doing, while they work on an assignment. 

        If you need more information and want to learn how to use Sanako, please ask a lab staff member or check these videos:
