Language Learning Centre

Teaching Lab VZ011

Project Purpose

The LLC facilities are currently used for classes of modern foreign languages (SLC's programmes), EFL and Deaf Studies (SLALS's programmes), Māori Studies, and Samoan Studies. Recent usage has indicated a constant increase in the use of our teaching facilities and general equipment - audio booths, satellite channels, computers, etc. - for independent learning too.

Technology Enhanced Language Learning (TELL) is a growing trend in "Second Language Acquisition" (SLA) and LLC staff, together with the VUW Library, are dedicated to helping facilitate more flexible language learning and teaching, and independent learning. The work began in November 2004 and the classroom opened in February 2005.

The current project on Virtual Worlds with the School of Languages and Cultures is made possible on the 6 machines equipped a dedicated grahic card allowing for the visualisation of high quality 3D environment.
