MTC language program evolving to better meet missionary needs
Deseret News 7Apr00 N1
By Rodger L. Hardy: Deseret News staff writer

For the past five years the Missionary Training Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has been using a computer system dubbed Technology Assisted Language Learning program, or TALL, said Elaine Lindsay, a BYU linguistics masters student. Lindsay recently conducted a study on how LDS missionaries were responding to the system.

In her recent study, Lindsay found that boredom was the major complaint among the slower language students when working with the computer. She also found that computer bugs and lack of lab space were also concerns.
