Self-Access Area

The Self-Access Area is the heart of the Language Resource Center. Here you can improve your language skills independently in a pleasant learning environment outside of language classes.

The Language Resource Center provides a wide range of language learning resources and houses materials in more than 40 languages. The main focus is on the languages taught at WU (i.e. English, French, Italian, Spanish, and Russian), but the Center also offers a wide range of materials for learning other languages such as Arabic, Bosnian/ Croatian/Serbian, Chinese, Dutch, German, Hungarian, Portuguese, Swedish, and Turkish.

The self-access area includes:

  • a lounge area with comfortable seating, where you can read newspapers (also the online version), language learning magazines and books

  • 5 tablets providing access to online newspapers and language learning software

  • 27 fully networked PCs with access to interactive language learning software

  • IPTV with more than 40 TV-channels in many different languages, some including subtitles

  • An extensive media library (books, software, audio courses, movies on DVD)

  • Access to the 5 Tandem Learning rooms.


You can find the Language Labs in Building LC, 1. OG, Level +2. To gain access to the labs you have to use the entrance of the OMV Library Center.
