As the year comes to an end, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your support and engagement. To show my appreciation, I have a special gift for you: for the month of January, you can download our digital Question Chart to use offline or upload it on your class or teacher website for your learners. It requires no installation: just click on the gift box image at the end of this post to get the zip file, then click on the QuestionChart.html file to run the Question Chart in your browser or embed it into your class or teacher website page.

Many teachers have asked me if it would be possible to include some form of automatic checking in the tool, so they don’t have to go through the sentences and identify all the errors themselves. While I didn’t see a way to do this before without setting strict limitations on vocabulary range and topics, new AI-driven tools now make it possible. Language processing models can help automate the process and check the accuracy of students’ questions, regardless of the topic. One such tool is ChatGPT (you can learn more about it in my post ‘Holy Jolly AI-Generated Christmas Activities‘). Just ask your students to copy their questions

and prompt the chatbot to check them by saying ‘Act as my teacher of English and check the accuracy of [insert the questions here].’ If needed, students can include more detail in their prompts to help the chatbot give more accurate feedback.

This may help you save time and focus on providing personalised support to your students.

Happy New Year and best wishes for a healthy and prosperous 2023!
