Iio, Takamasa; Maeda, Ryota; Ogawa, Kohei; Yoshikawa, Yuichiro; Ishiguro, Hiroshi; Suzuki, Kaori; Aoki, Tomohiro; Maesaki, Miharu; Hama, Mika – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
This paper reports how robot-assisted language learning (RALL) impacts Japanese adults' English speaking skills. With existing research on RALL focusing on children, there is little evidence indicating RALL's effects on adults.
