We will showcase how AI tools can act as a bridge in language learning, providing tools and resources that adapt to the diverse needs of students. Our goal is to empower educators with strategies for implementing AI that not only meet diverse educational needs but also foster a culture of inclusivity and engagement in language courses. We will explore how AI can support differentiated learning while preserving the essential human aspects of communication and interaction. Participants will gain insights into how AI can be a personalized learning partner, transforming the educational landscape for language learners.
