Presentation Abstract:

Autonomy and Motivation in Language Labs

Language labs in ESL/EFL learning have become a bridge for providing a more individualized approach for students who want to develop their skills in ESL/EFL. In particular, the speaking lab at a university in California offers students the opportunity to further develop their pronunciation, presentation, and conversational skills. As a result, students are able to excel in their ESL/EFL learning. The research I am doing takes a close look at the way the speaking lab is structured and how the courses it offers, such as pronunciation, increases student motivation and autonomy in ESL/EFL.
