Abstract

As new technologies advance language teachers are gaining more and more new tools to use in their work and to improve, upgrade and expand their teaching methods. Within a TEMPUS project, the Faculty of Philology in Banja Luka recently obtained a Sanako computer phonological laboratory for use in its foreign language departments. This paper presents one possible use of such a language laboratory, specifically for teaching language interpretation skills. The paper first gives a short overview of the software and activity options available through the language laboratory, followed by a comparison of how language interpretation skills were previously exercised to potential new approaches which make use of the language laboratory. The paper further gives a brief overview of some of our experiences in such classes with an experimental group of students, reflecting on the observed benefits, difficulties and possible outcomes, aiming to enable a broader implementation and utilization of the language laboratory and hoping to support the English Department’s efforts to keep up with modern trends in EFL. Keywords: language laboratory, interpretation, computer-assisted language learning
