Chat Robots


After reading about it in Larry´s blog I decided to try the chat robots and see how my students would feel if they tried it. It´s quite interesting and fun. You just start typing a question and the girl interacts with you. You can see the words and hear the girl speaking as well. Try it out here http://cartoonenglish.tv/Chat.html

You can find a list of other chat bots at this list taken from EFL classroom 2.0

Hello Ana,

I just loved the talking robot. I have also added odiogo to my blog. It is a nice tool and would help students to work on their pronunciaation.
I wonder if you have ever tried oddcast http://www.oddcast.com/home/studio You will have to click on TTS Free demo. They allow some trials, and you can choose the language and the talking character. My students jus love it.
Hugs
JA
