Abstract

The 4th industrial revolution brought up technologies and phenomena that make native speakers less important for language education if the usage of new technologies and their implementation are re-thought. We do not need native speakers on site. Shipping native speakers around the world negates the progresses that were made in the past two decades. Yet there still is a lot to learn and even more to teach, how these technologies can be used, how cultural, technological and economical changes are interdependent and how we can take advantage of these interdependencies. Hence language education cannot be discussed without all the tools, humans need to survive in the 21st century. And it can't be discussed without experts of other fields than education, like me, who isn't actually a teacher. Shipping native speakers like me around the world is a luxurious act, which can be replaced by new technologies. All we need to do is to acknowledge the reality we live in, approach language students in a multi-dimensional approach, and break the bubbles and foster interdisciplinary collaborations
