Effective and Sensible Use of Digital Language Lab for Better Teaching

When you hear the words “language lab”, do you think of boring language learning activities?
Those who studied a language in school or college can recall the unlimited time spent parroting learning items in a language lab.
Nowadays, language labs have advanced much more and became modern and realistic. This evolutionary step can bring your English students closer to native-level speaking skills and boost their communication skill areas by providing valuable exposure to the language in action.
Judicious use of learning materials will help to make your language classes sensible and inspiring for learners. How to use contents from the language labs was always a question before teachers. But with the emergence of multimedia language laboratory contented with learning materials based on the age and difficulty level, teachers can easily instruct and assign lessons for students.
When lessons or activities are completed (or being completed), the teacher can access the data to use it in a variety of ways. Teachers can have a look at what the students have completed, and see how they are progressing. These assessments can help teachers to see if they need to review learning methods or concepts that the students don’t follow or understand. If you see that students find certain activities too easy, you can move on and teach more complex concepts.
If you observe your students consistently lacking in certain areas, give them timely feedback on their learning and give remedial classes if needed. If you see that the majority of your students are interested in certain learning activities you provided, then you can incorporate more of those in your lessons.
