This research aims to determine whether or not it is possible to use artificial intelligence (AI) in English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) courses and review previous research pertinent to artificial intelligence in EFL/ESL instruction to present a comprehensive picture of the current degree of artificial intelligence in EFL/ESL instruction. Utilization of intelligent teaching systems, self-regulated learning, virtual reality, immersive virtual environment, and natural language processing in teaching English as a foreign language classroom. The study adopted the questionnaire as a tool for data collection then data was analyzed and discussed to reach the results. The results showed that the ethical responsibility for making the most effective use of AI in the classroom now falls on both educators and students themselves. The article also concludes that artificial intelligence (AI) positively impacts the field of English language teaching (ELT) and learning; however, it needs to be better integrated into educational settings. Teachers and students need to be more aware of the new applications and tools that have flooded the field of AI in recent years. This conclusion was reached in the context of the article.
