Teaching goals

Learning vocabulary is an important part of learning world languages, but it can lead to rote memorization that fails to engage students.

While teachers often use tools like Quizlet to help students practice vocabulary, Flint can offer a much more personalized and engaging experience.

With Flint, the AI can go through a vocabulary list (e.g. from Quizlet) and quiz students on translations — all while answering student questions, picking up on areas of improvement, and helping students understand the context behind the vocabulary.

As you can see below, the teacher has set an ACTFL level, provided a learning objective, and uploaded a vocab list from Quizlet:

Learning objective:

ACTFL Level: Novice

Know the Spanish words for these animals and be able to use them in a sentence.

Extra customization

By default, the AI will give students hints, but will not give away the translation for the words. However, this behavior can be customized.

For example, we can change the “Helpfulness level” to “Full”. This will let the AI freely correct students when they make a mistake by providing them with the correct answer, which could make this activity more suitable for extra practice.

The tutor also defaulted to having the whole conversation in Spanish, which is a bit too advanced for this proficiency level. The teacher set the primary language to English with a secondary language of Spanish, which would allow the AI to interact with the student in both languages.

Student experience

Once a student starts a session with the AI tutor, they’ll be given words of animals from the Quizlet vocab list in English. Then, the student will have to use them in Spanish in a sentence.

Because the “Helpfulness level” has been adjusted to “Full”, the AI will readily correct student mistakes. Additionally, students can ask clarifying questions to improve their use of the vocab words in a sentence or to ask more advanced questions, as shown below.

Throughout the conversation, the AI will answer student questions while continuing to make its way through the entire vocab list provided by the teacher.

Once the student submits their session, they’ll get immediate feedback highlighting their strengths as well as any areas for improvement (e.g. missed vocab words). This summary is available to the teacher, along with the audio recording of the whole conversation.

"I really like that Flint is giving feedback and lets you re-do your responses, incorporating the suggestions. I tried the chat in spoken Spanish, and the bot was able to roleplay and understand everything. It’s amazing how well it can keep asking deeper and deeper questions based on the initial prompt. This is such a revolutionary tool for language learning!"

“Flint has become my new favorite tool both in and out of the classroom. I can have students engage in written or spoken conversations in French about the material we study in class. Flint supports me in implementing differentiated instruction because I can have students getting feedback on an assignment while the rest of the class is practicing their conversational skills.”
