Description
To continue our tradition and commitment to the study of foreign languages and cultures, the Language Learning Center needs to encourage creative uses of the latest technology that focus on communicative competency, functional language use, and proficiency in the target language. Integrating the academic use of iPods and podcasting in foreign language classes creates a unique opportunity to address oral and aural skills development at any level with an ever popular, practical and portable medium.
