This survey was conducted in order to investigate the use of instructional equipment in junior high school English programs. About 1,000 schools with language laboratories or computer classrooms were selected. The survey form with 26 questions was mailed to each JHS in September 1998. About 28.2% replied. The results show that about two thirds of the respondents with language laboratories use them on a regular basis. However, 20.6% of the schools with computer classrooms use them to teach English, primary because these rooms are in use for the teaching of other subject matters. Pattern Practice Drills, which were once the primary exercise type in LLs, are now most commonly used in computer assisted instruction of English. LLs are now primary used for pronunciation drills and listening practice. As computers become more sophisticated and are able to listen and respond to student input, they will eventually assume more of the functions of the language laboratory. But this will take time.
