Why Digital Language Lab?
The four basic principles for acquiring proficiency in any language are Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing or (LSRW). Although these are intrinsically linked they must all be mastered in the LSRW order of learning an order that we unconsciously adopt when learning the mother tongue and obtaining fluency in the language.
However, in a typical classroom setting this order is reversed. The student is first taught to write or spell the words, learn sentence structuring by reading passages/poems etcetera and then attempt to speak with zero exposure to any auditory source other than the instructor who (more often than not) is also a non-native speaker who has also learned the language in more or less the same manner. Disadvantages of language learning in a typical classroom setting are:
- Inhibits effective communication
- Incorrect pronunciation
- Inability to comprehend native accents and idioms
Conventional/Analogue Language Learning Laboratories
It was to overcome this fundamental shortfall of language teaching/learning in a typical setting that led to the emergence of analogue language laboratories in the early 1970s with the advent of audio tapes, amplifiers and speakers/headphones.
- Listen to recorded voices of native speakers
- Repeat and record
- Compare accent and pronunciations
- Instructor can only assign preset lessons
- Limited student evaluation
- Expensive to acquire and maintain
