Speak & Improve

Hauptfunktion(en): Autonomous learning

Speak & Improve is a tool which helps English language learners improve their speaking and pronunciation skills by answering questions asked by an AI-generated robot. It is being developed by the University of Cambridge and is currently a research project. Bewertung: Speak & Improve is a useful tool to encourage students to practise their spoken English and to help increase their confidence in speaking. A suggestion for use would be to ask students to submit an audio recording of their chats with Speak & Improve, and then to work on their speaking and pronunciation after hearing themselves speak. Speak & Improve also provides an orientative grade of the students’ CEFR speaking level by analysing their responses, although this is not always accurate.
