Advances in artificial intelligence has transformed the way we interact with our devices. Now we can command our devices to call a friend, play our favorite music, or play our favorite series on Netflix. We have virtual butlers who we have named Siri, Alexa, and Google and respond through a series of voice commands. Now our learners who have access to smart devices can download Google Assistant for free and use voice commands to help them learn. Voice assistants can help our learners with their homework, make research more engaging and provide them with help while they read or do math. Voice assistants can also be another way language learners practice speaking and listening to English outside the classroom. Below is a slide presentation (download for free) to get you started.
