The Digital Transformation of Language Learning
This presentation describes how digital technology and artificial intelligence have the potential of transforming and revolutionizing the way that we learn languages. The presentation also demonstrates a concrete example of this potential by describing the features of an advanced digital language learning platform which has been under research and development for the past four years. This advanced language learning platform leverages digital technologies and artificial intelligence to create a virtual immersive environment where, assisted with digital tools, a person can accelerate language learning through exposure to compelling and comprehensible video and audio content in the target language. The digital platform enables a user to import this content from online sources and provides automated digital language tools which turn this material into “comprehensible input” which can be used as the basis of a compelling, engaging and effective language learning experience.
