Before the MTLRC was established, students had to cope with limited and unreliable old technology. This LRC exists for electronically mediated individual and small group activities, appropriate in the acquisition of foreign-language skills. It was named for the first chair of our Department of Modern Foreign Languages, and is maintained for use by its students and faculty. For a limited time, you can see the MTLRC through the eye of a webcam.

The Center's analog technology allows us to view cable-delivered foreign-language TV programs. UTMartin is currently a licenced distributor for the following foreign-language television stations:
