ChatGPT, a generative AI tool, has garnered significant interest due to its advanced capability to perform intricate tasks since it became available to the public. Numerous educators have conducted study on the sophisticated instrument in providing possible advantages for language instruction and acquisition. It is essential to comprehend the attitudes and experiences of students towards developing technologies in order to effectively integrate them into language learning contexts, as technology innovations continue to influence educational landscapes. This study aims to evaluate the attitudes of Vietnamese university students towards utilizing ChatGPT as a means to enhance their English learning. Additionally, it seeks to examine their perspectives of the benefits and drawbacks associated with ChatGPT. The study involved the collection of data from a sample of 100 undergraduate Vietnamese students. The data was obtained by the administration of a questionnaire that included items rated on a 5-point Likert scale. The study’s findings indicate that students perceive ChatGPT as a valuable tool for enhancing their English language learning. However, it is crucial to prioritize the aspect of information security going forward. Collaboration among policymakers, technology experts, academics, and educators is essential to explore the safe and efficient integration of ChatGPT and other developing generative AI tools into English teaching and learning.
