In this paper, we present an exploratory study on using a social robot in a conversational setting to practice a second language, the use of AI (artificial intelligence) applications in second language learning, social adaptation and rights protection of migrant workers in Taiwan. This research mainly focuses on how to use humanoid robots to help immigrants learn languages, promote interpersonal communication, and seek immigrants’ well-being. Immigrants' language learning is different from ordinary language learners, because immigrants need to learn the local language and integrate into the society. In addition, immigrants usually have jobs and cannot take language courses in regular classroom settings like ordinary language learners. Moreover, this article uses the impact of the pandemic as a starting point to explore the innovative models of humanoid robots in immigrant language learning and the possibility of seeking well-being for immigrants. This article focuses on the new immigrants of Taiwan, most of whom are Southeast Asians, and Indonesian are the largest population. The present project focuses on how a robot can adapt to immigrants to provide an engaging tutoring interaction that supports learning a second language.
