Web Based Lab for the Textbook Crescendo 2e (ITL 201, 202)
This password-protected page is located at Salem State University's Language Resource Center website.
From this page you can access the audio and video clips you need in order to complete the lab/video sections of your workbook manual(s) that come with your course's textbook.
This page is the main source for these audio and video clips for all students enrolled in language courses through Continuing Education (evening and summer courses) at Salem State, unless your instructor tells you otherwise.
Language students enrolled in the Day School normally do not come here to complete their lab work. They must use the language laboratory at the LRC during operating hours. Only occasionally under exceptional circumstances an instructor in a day course may grant a student the privilege to complete all or part of their lab homework from this page. Day students granted this priviledge must be students in good standing and must adhere strictly to all the rules for completion of the lab work. The instructor may require that this form/contract be completed.
Correcting your Homework
The lab work your instructor assigns is meant to give you listening practice that is crucial for learning a foreign language. You are expected to try to answer all the questions on your own after having studied the relevant sections in the textbook and having had a chance to practice them in class. The answer key to your workbook is provided here to give you a chance to get quick feedback, which is very important for learning. It is extremely important, however, that the key be used properly, to make corrections and not to cut corners. Please follow the following directions:
It is relatively easy for an instructor to figure out if you are using the key incorrectly. Your instructor may decide to give no credit, or partial credit, for homeworks in which the key was not used correctly.
