I had to choice Alice to write my reflection because I came across one of the biggest problem about technological tools and I couldn't access to other robot's web site.
First of all I want to mention that robots are really clever than I thought. I can explain their language knowledge with '*'. let's start;
*1 is very important in my opinion because a lot of students have a difficulty to combine to subject with plural -be verb and it can be helpful them
*2 it's just a robot but she can create imperative sentences. Alice can be effective for my students to learn different grammar structures.
*3 sometimes it is problematic because when I refer Cyprus with 'it' she cannot connect old sentences and new information
*4 beware!! don't despise her. She can be very politic:). It is a good answer .
*5 Another disadvantage is even you just make letter mistake she couln't understand you because it is artificial. she hasn't got nature of language. If I made same mistake to real person, he would undertand me.
Using this kind of thing can be enjoyable for my students.As a teacher I can give prject to my student to chat one of this robots and than examining the grammar structures which were created by it. So with this way I can increase my students' awareness of second language learning process. I can create this type of activity in my writing section. So students will be more carefull for not doing any mistakes because it isjust a robot and generally it creates grammatically correct sentenes. but Artificial intelligences have a problem with comprehension. I guest this is the most clear thing which made us different than other things.
