Language labs, as already mentioned, involve the presence of particular equipment, which performs the important task of acting as a support for learning a new language: in fact, thanks to the presence of headphones, microphones and PCs, the student will be able to carry out the learning activities in an extremely entertaining manner.
The teacher will periodically load all the necessary material into a special software, which will have the important task of containing all the material necessary for the correct execution of the lessons. Within this software, the teacher will be able to visualize the student’s study progress, evaluate the tests, verify the correct execution of the exercises and much more, in an extremely easy and fast manner. At the same time, through the use of this particular control software, it is possible to determine, and above all to know, what the student is doing at any given time.
Language labs make it possible to practice the four main language skills in a playful and interactive manner: listening, speaking, reading and writing.

4) Accessible technologies
Teachers can use a language lab to easily create highly interactive learning environments where students can learn in a natural environment without the need for complicated technology.
5) Increased pleasure
