The School of Languages and Linguistics is the beneficiary of a large development grant allocated to the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. It has enabled the School to acquire the latest technology for its language teaching and training in its interpreting programs. The new language laboratory is housed in newly refurbished rooms on Level one of the Morven Brown Building.

The new equipment is easy to use and includes features such as:

  • Consecutive and Simultaneous interpreting facilities
  • Access to a vaster variety of listening sources
  • Ability to record students’ speech and collect sound files
  • Improved research opportunities

The official opening ceremony took place in August 2007.
