The foreign language laboratory, also known as a language laboratory, makes use of specific educational resources for the teaching of foreign languages.
This classroom is usually adequately equipped with audiovisual, technological and audio resources to support the learning of a foreign language.
The most commonly used tools are the audio player through digital discs with original sounds in the language studied. Work is also sometimes carried out in the computer classroom, taking advantage of these resources and the potential of the Internet itself.
There are specialist teachers who support this activity and native teachers who are fluent in the language and serve as a particularly effective phonetic model. It is worth mentioning the increase in the number of schools which teach certain subjects in a foreign language, generally English, and this activity is included in the so-called bilingual training programmes.
