Google Assistant Assisted Language Learning (GAALL): ESL Learners’ Perception and Problem towards AI-powered Google Assistant-Assisted English Language Learning

Moulieswaran N, Prasantha Kumar N S


The New-fangled strategy called Artificial Intelligence (AI) Assisted Language Learning (AI-ALL) incorporates Google Assistant (GA) to support the learning activities of learners. At present, it is considered Google Assistant Assisted Language Learning (GAALL). For many years, academicians have been exploring ways to use AI for tasks that are related to education. The major objectives of this study are to emphasize 1) The ESL learners' perceptions of using AI-powered Google Assistant for learning the English language; 2). The ESL learners’ problems are concerned with utilizing AI-powered Google Assistant to support language learning, especially in English. A survey instrument was employed to the data, including primary research objects, from (n = 141) engineering stream undergraduates. The data was gathered using a questionnaire with 5 points Likert scale. According to the survey, the vast majority of students, especially individuals who were learning English, had a positive opinion of AI-driven GA. The major problem is the lack of quality in GA on smartphones. However, it is envisaged that AI-powered GA in language learning, also known as GAALL, would be deployed as one of the instructional media that might help learners to learn English efficiently as a Second Language. This study suggests that further research studies in this field could be conducted to test the efficacy of AI in ESL contexts.
