  2. Music. A CD player is available for special use, e.g., special music tapes.
  3. Games and puzzles may be used in the conversation area in room 258. The games are in the cabinets and must be returned to the cabinets when finished. We have Monopoly and Scrabble in several languages and Cranium in Spanish.
  4. DVDs are also available for your use. We have several DVDs in the bookshelf near the listening station. The DVDs have cultural information, grammar, and entertainment programs in various languages. The DVDs can only be played on the two new Dell computers.
  5. Conversation. In the conversation area students may watch programs as a group, play games, or have conversations all in the target language!
