worksheet about artificial intelligence

LESSON OVERVIEW

This worksheet about artificial intelligence consists of tasks built around an article and jobs that it will create rather than destroy.

B2 / Upper Intermediate30 minStandard LessonPremium Plan

READING

The worksheet starts with three questions. Make your students discuss them and spend as much time on them as you can. Next, students check whether they were right by reading the first part of the article. The article has some gaps in it, so in the next task students have to choose the best words to complete them. For each gap, they have four options to choose from.

LISTENING

When it comes to the second part of the article, students have to listen to it and complete its gaps with one to three words each. By the way, the audio file for the second part of the article is generated with the use of artificial intelligence 🙂 Could you tell a difference? Finally, students move to a short discussion about the article and their own ideas.

    excellent, thanks

    The audio file is problematic. It is not possible to scroll backwards or forwards. Instead of giving the instruction to scroll to the last 2 mins. 40 secs of the file, give us the exact time. Would it be possible for you to extract the file and make it downloadable? Thank you.

    1. Stan

      Yeah, you’re right we should’ve done it the way you say. Please start the recording at 4:52 for ex. 4. In terms, rewinding and fastforwarding the recording, you just need to click the timebar wherever you want to start playing it. Unfortunately, there’s no way to download that audio file :/
