Undoubtedly, the conversation around artificial intelligence (AI) has recently intensified, fostered by the rapid development of technology. Learning institutions have joined in the debate, with teachers and learners on the frontline of this conversation. This study particularly explores the direct impact of AI applications such as chatbots (ChatGPT), personalized learning experiences, and predictive analytics on EFL classroom learning, outlining AI's advantages and disadvantages on foreign language learners and their teachers. It employs a qualitative approach to data collection and screening, utilizing surveys on a sample of students at university level. Evidently, from the study findings, AI can potentially improve learning, especially among foreign students in EFL classrooms. However, there is concern about AI inhibiting the development of learners’ research and critical thinking skills. Largely, the findings recognize AI’s value in EFL classrooms but appeal for caution from teachers in its application. This study offers valuable insights into AI’s impact on EFL classrooms and offers possible changes that could help in its successful integration into EFL teaching practice.
