AI won't make you fluent but it can do this...

AI may be here to stay but it's just a translator, not a native Spanish, English, or Italian speaker who can actually help you.

Have you been seeing ads on social media about AI chat for language apps like Duolingo? I've been seeing ones about how if you use an app like Jumpspeak or Duolingo, then you get to chat with an AI bot who will correct your speaking. This is what I'm talking about. Don't fall for it. AI is not going to help you become fluent in a language. That's because it's not a real person who gives you instant feedback on how a native speaker actually communicates in the real world. Instead, think of AI as a translator. And not always a great one at that. Think of Google Translate. It's AI, and it's a translator, but it's most definitely not always right!

Here's what AI can do for you instead

It can help you with passive learning, like watching TV and reading books. While you're doing those activities, AI can help you increase your vocabulary and your listening comprehension. Out of all the apps out there for learning a language, I recommend these two... 📖 EWA for reading books 📺 Language Reactor for watching YouTube and Netflix Check out what I say about them.

Have you used AI to learn a language? I'm curious!
