Chat with Alice

Talking with Alice was more enjoyable and more fluent.Jabberwacky is very slow. I like this experience and I can say that as a student I  learned some new experisions or some staff from casual language such as "dude", "I have long way to go" .There are some  nonsense sentences.Also they can be rude from time to time.Especially Jabberwacky!I thinkUsing AI can be useful for language learning but there are some risks.For example ( as also you mentioned in your post) AI learns things from users, from human being.So you can't be sure appropriatenes of language AI is especially risky for  the younger learners! It can be Ok for the older students.Another risks can be related with nonsense sentences.Imagine your students acquaire those wrong language!!Lets look at the part of the  dialog with Alice. meral: it was nice to talk to you Alice
ALICE: Nice to talk to me too.It is just one of several bad examples.
If one just start to learn English, Alice responses can confuse him, even he can learn it in a wrong way:(.Because Alice also learning the language she use, from nonnative speakers who are trying to learn English.So It is strongly possible that they can teach Alice wrong language.So students who will use AI, shoul be aware of these risks.Consequently, I may use AI for the older students who are capable of understanding the drawbacks of the tool.It can be very good idea that to create my own bot, because then I can  teach to my bot both grammatical and ethical utterances! But then I should be a perfect user of English, also I should know the colloquial language which is used everyday life well!.
    In conclusion,If I am able to create my bot, I can confidently  use AI as a part of my teaching( for example They can chat regularly and identfy new structures then post their response on my teaching blog or on their learner blogs.)otherwise I don't use it regularly but it can be used just for fun in sometimes:)
Following dialog between me and Alice includes both  nonsense and useful sentenses.I used blue color  for some examples of nonsense and red color for useful sentenses to show them to you!
