Type : Paper (25 minutes)
Category : Individual session
Abstract :

Chatbots or artificially intelligent conversational tools are the automatically new tools designed to interact with humans and computers. The tool of chatbot system is very effective in marketing and launching new products. Using chatbot as a tool of learning with logical sequences of cognition has attracted a lot of attention from many foreign language centers, such as VUS, ILA, etc. This research is conducted to apply AI chatbot for helping students to learn a specific knowledge of a foreign language. The research also discusses students’ interests and engagements, and performances in two ways of learning: with and without the help of AI chatbot via the case of teaching some English prepositions. 200 students were selected and divided into experimental and control groups (100 students for each respectively). The purpose of this empirical experiment was to test whether or not the AI chatbot is effective and useful for enhancing students’ performance and engagement in learning a specific point of a foreign language. With the preliminary results, the students benefited a lot from a new learning experience with the use of AI chatbot in teaching. Most of them perceived AI chatbot tools as an essential part of their learning process. The AI chatbot also generated excitement and fun for their learning. The research may open up a field for language teachers to explore and apply for their teaching in the digital era.
