Wonder if they'll have any more luck than humans? (With Indians probably will).
Surprised King K. and the HCT didn't get there first.

Perhaps they could train the camel jockey robots to teach?

Don't think EFL teachers need worry just yet...

The robots, like other technology, are there to enhance the students' learning on specific subjects. They're not intended to replace teachers in those subjects.

It seems that some ADEC schools have boxes of Lego Mindstorms sitting and collecting dust because the teachers are afraid to open them up. I just hope that this school asked the teachers about these new toys. As so often happens, someone decides to blow the budget on a new bell or whistle, and nobody asks the teachers if they could make use of it.
