Step 1: Read this simplified summary of the video.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is when computers can do things that usually only people can do. This includes things like understanding pictures, making choices, and talking. To do this, the computers need to know a lot and have experience. They can learn this by being told what to do step by step or by learning from large amounts of example information. AI is used in many things we do every day like suggesting movies or music we might like. It can understand what we say and change it into writing or another language. AI can even help doctors find out if someone is sick. AI is becoming more and more important and can help us with things we do at home and at work.

Here are some tips for getting the most out of this site.
Beginners: My strategy is to first read the translation while listening to the audio. Then I listen to each sentence individually. After that, I practice saying the vocabulary words out loud. Finally, I listen to the whole text again without reading the translation. I don't try to remember or understand everything. I just let the language sink in as I gain more exposure.

Intermediate Learners: To gain some speaking practice, try opening the translation in your native language and then translate it back into the language you're learning. If you encounter any difficulties, you can refer to the transcripts.
Although you may use these lessons for short, intense study sessions, it's important for intermediate learners to engage in extensive listening and reading with simple books, TV shows, and podcasts as soon as possible.
