The Language Institute receives satellite broadcasts from countries throughout the world. News, documentaries and other programs are recorded on a regular basis and the tapes are kept on reserve at the College Avenue Language Lab, where they may be viewed by students, faculty and staff. Since some broadcasts are subtitled, they also may be of interest to members of the wider university community.
Faculty who wish to have broadcasts recorded for instructional or research purposes should call Joseph Ponist at (732) 932-7373 x16.
