You CANNOT pass this course without successfully completing the online Lecture and the Listening Laboratory requirement.

To complete assigned work for the online component of the Language Laboratory requirement:
  • You can access the on-line Virtual Laboratory from any computer on- or off-campus with Internet access.   Before you can listen to files or view video clips, you will need RealPlayer ( and Quicktime as well as a computer with a sound-card(almost all computers do have a sound card.) When doing this at home, you will need speakers on your computer or headphones.  
    • If you don't have RealPlayer, you must go to the Website and download a copy.  There is a free version of Real Player  offered on the RealPlayer Webpage.  Be sure when downloading RealOne that you are obtaining the FREE version.  Don't click on the Realplayer editions you must pay for unless you mean to.
    • If you don't have Quicktime, you must go to the Website and download a copy.  There is a free version of Quicktime offered on the Apple Website.
