Cours de conversation en anglais : Wednesday 3th and Thursday 4th April 2019


More and more people are talking to machines – more specifically, virtual assistants or bots. It’s easy to do because you can often find them on your smartphone, computer or even a speaker in your house. Rob and Dan discuss how this is changing the way we interact with technology and the type of language we use.

This week’s question:

When was the first computer which could recognise speech, launched? Was it in:

a) 1951
b) 1961
c) 1971

Listen to the programme to find out the answer.
