“We're at the cusp of using AI for probably the biggest positive transformation that education has ever seen” – Salman Khan

Integrating AI into language teaching can be a transformative experience for teachers and their students. When used effectively, AI can save you considerable time on lesson preparation and materials creation. It can also give teachers access to additional professional development opportunities.

If students are able to use AI correctly, it offers personalised learning, meaningful practice and engaging content. However, misuse can hinder the learning process and assessment. Training students to use AI correctly is one of the most important challenges teachers will face in the coming years. 

Using AI can help students 

  • Get more feedback than a teacher could individually provide 
  • Practice communicating without pressure or anxiety 
  • Access personalised and engaging content 
  • Develop critical thinking skills 
  • Get answers to questions they might hesitate to ask in class 
  • Receive customised practice activities matching their skill level 
  • Prepare for standardised tests
