ABSTRACT  Using questionnaires returned by randomly selected students, we studied the FL laboratory and department of State Supported University. The students' evaluation proved important because it revealed discrepancies between the faculty's and the students' views. The majority of students did not find their FL classes interesting and wanted all FL requirements abolished. They disliked laboratory work; however, they wanted the laboratory to remain open if it were programmed imaginatively and run efficiently. To find the basis for these opinions, we examined the students' comments and studied the management and personnel of the department.
