    The Optimas system provides control over the classroom, which saves time and is very easy. We use it for our classes with children from 6 to 12 years old, where it is necessary to switch up some activities and break the monotony in the classroom, so the Optimas is very handy. There are many functions and, frankly, we only use certain ones, which facilitate our work with the material we use in class, but the possibilities are endless.
    It is also very easy to adapt to it, it is very intuitive and fast, it speeds up the work of the teacher and you can work with it immediately.

    "For us, the Roycan Languages Laboratory has greatly improved the control the teacher has on the students. Thanks to its software, the teacher has full control of the classroom so they can take the reins of the class at all times, optimizing time and taking advantage of the 8 broadcast channels so they can speed up the pace of the class. They simply have to prepare the session a little. In addition, we have also noticed how our classes have been enriched with the new resources.

    "Although it took us a certain time to feel completely comfortable using the most important functions as it takes practice to remember the order of operations to get to the desired result, all the teachers are now able to have students work in pairs or in groups, block the students’ computers when they want to have their attention and broadcast their screen on the students’ computers. Our contact at Roycan has always been very helpful and considerate, and we have felt like the company really cared about us being happy with their product. We have been using this system for almost two years now. I would definitely recommend the Optimas School system."

  • What is a Language Laboratory?

    What is a Language Laboratory?


    The Language Laboratories are becoming items better and better valued within educational institutions since the functions and possibilities they offer are much higher than the ones in the traditional teaching-learning system

    Moreover it is necessary to distinguish between language laboratory, language method and control software. A method in a procedural that guides teachers when, in turn, control software is a computer program that is used to control students' computers and to know what they are doing at all times. Instead, a language lab goes beyond, a language lab can integrate the method we want to use allowing further development of a large number of different activities in the classroom, the communication between teachers and students, using multimedia material, etc. taking into account at the same time the functions of control software.

    Language immersion, attention to diversity, teamwork promotion, etc. are just some of the outstanding features of the language laboratories. According Juana Gil Fernandez (Head of the Laboratory of Phonetics. Council for Scientific Research) a language lab “allows the teacher, if desired, to transcend everyday teaching of a language to enter fully in the investigation of cognitive process of acquiring and learning foreign languages ​​in general [...]”.

  • Why should you use a language laboratory?

    Why should you use a language laboratory?


    A language lab creates a learning environment much more effective than traditional classrooms enhancing the capabilities of students and allowing a high degree of immersion and attention to diversity.

    A language laboratory encourages the participation and integration of the students in the different exercises and this is reflected, for example, in the time it takes to students to speak in another language during class. In a traditional class of 45 minutes the percentage of time spent by students to speak in the language they are studying is 2.2% while in a language laboratory classroom the percentage of time spent reaches nearly 24%. It is also necessary to note that these figures might be higher depending on the exercises taking place in the class.

    In addition, the use of the language lab allows students to have access to the information quickly and easily developing many types of classroom exercises, personalizing the learning process, encouraging creativity, innovation and training . Language laboratories also favor a high degree of skill development, team and collaborative work eliminating socio-temporal barriers since information is not found in a particular and specific place and at the same time, they foster digital literacy responding to new educational and social needs.
