African Language Lab

Opening Soon.

The African Language Lab is an initiative of the Center for African Studies, the Founders Library, and the Department of World Languages. It is located on the 2nd floor next to the Circulation Desk in the Founders Library. The main goal of the lab is to help students who study African languages improve their foreign language skills by using the interactive computer programs and audio/video materials equipped in the language lab. In addition, graded listening and speaking exercises that facilitate language learning can be undertaken in the lab. The Language Lab includes 7 computer workstations with dedicated graphic cards.

Each computer is equipped with a headset and camera for remote communications and optimized for language learning. Different classes will access the lab facilities at different times. When the library reopens, tutors will be available to assist students who need help.

For more information, please contact the Department of World Languages and Cultures at (202) 806-6758 or email Dr. Leonard Muaka, the Interim Chair and African Languages Program Coordinator at
