What’s the point of learning to write emails? – ChatGPT in the BE classroom – a webinar by Joanna Szoke

Dear Colleagues,

IATEFL Poland and Joanna Szoke, Educator, trainer and writer,

have the pleasure to invite you to the webinar

“What’s the point of learning to write emails? – ChatGPT in the BE classroom


The AI-powered ChatGPT software isn’t the first and only AI tool that our students are using to make their emails sound more professional. It’s not necessarily a bad thing that they use various tools since their growing autonomy is one of our aims as business language teachers and coaches. But what if they start writing complete emails with the use of ChatGPT, and our work and assistance are no longer needed? Does this mean that AI tools have made our work pointless? Definitely not! It does mean, however, that we have to slightly alter the focus of skills lessons. In this workshop, we’re going to look at some practical ways of incorporating ChatGPT in our lessons.
