The Rock Creek Language Learning Lab is for currently enrolled ESOL, Japanese, and Spanish students. It is a great place for ESOL students to learn how to type and use computers, practice English pronunciation and grammar, do homework, check email, and work on projects. In addition to software programs, the computers have internet access with a list of favorite websites available on every computer in the lab and a handout of useful ESOL internet sites.
