The Paul and Edith Cooper International Learning Center is a state of the art learning center specializing in foreign language education. The Cooper Center lab computers supports input and output in Arabic, Russian, German, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, French, and Italian. A variety of technology—Skype, Audacity, and Second Life, for example—promotes interaction with people in distant parts of the world. The lab also has birds that chirp and a fish tank that gurgles; ambient noises that put people at ease when making their own sounds.
