Open Access Language Laboratory
Whether you want to supplement your language course with some extra practice, or just learn a new language in your spare time, the Language Laboratory is available to all College members, free of charge.
The Language Lab (Lab 2, Room 313, Sherfield) is open for self-access study from 08.00 to 22.00, seven days a week, whenever it is not in use as a classroom. Please see the Language Lab Timetable [pdf] for availability.
We have a wide range of audio materials available for many languages (see list).
Language Lab Self-Access Times
Once you are registered, you can use Lab 2 for self-access every weekday (including at the weekend) from 18.00-20.00, outside of teaching hours (i.e. at the times shown as 'free' on the timetable linked to below).
How to Register to Use the Lab
Although any member of College may use the Lab, we ask that all potential users attend an introduction/registration session in Lab 2 (Room 313) before using the lab for the first time.
During term-time there are weekly Lab Inductions on Wednesdays at 14.00* in Language Lab 2 (Room 313, Centre for Languages, Culture & Communication, Level 3 Sherfield)
No appointment is needed for these sessions, though if this time is never convenient for you, you can email the Languages Programme Administrator or Language Lab Support to request a mutually-convenient time.
*NB: During vacation-time you are requested to make an appointment with Language Lab Support.
