Author(s): Dr. Abdulrahman Alfahadi
Language proficiency is best raised through active and frequent use. It is important to provide students with maximum English exposure as well as meaningful and purposeful activities through which they can learn and apply the target language.
A rich English language learning environment can be created by making full use of the time and resources both inside and outside the classroom. Based on previous studies and experiences of peer universities, developing learning resource center has become widespread in many universities, colleges, and schools.
Accordingly, the current project attempts to develop a learning resource center for the Languages and Translation Department at the University of Tabuk. The project attempts to create a convenient place for the students of Tabuk University to facilitate and develop their language skills through resources and technologies. To achieve this objective of this project, the researcher has designed two questionnaires for the teachers and the students to collect the attitudes toward developing a learning resource center for the Department of Languages and Translation at the University of Tabuk.
