Natural Language Processing (NLP) is an efficient method for enhancing educational outcomes. In educational settings, implementing NLP entails starting the learning process through natural acquisition. English teaching and learning have received increased attention from the relevant education departments as an integral aspect of the new curriculum reform. The environment of English teaching and learning is undergoing extraordinary changes as a result of the constant improvement and extension of teaching level and scale, as well as the growth of Internet information technology. As a result, the current research aims to look into techniques for efficiently using AI (artificial intelligence) apps to teach and learn English from the perspective of university students. This research can measure the levels as well as effectiveness of the employment of AI applications for teaching English based on deep learning techniques. There, the NLP based language enhancement has been carried out using Character-level recurrent neural network with back Propagation neural network (Cha_RNN_BPNN) based classification. With the help of this DL (deep learning) technique, it is possible to use AI methods to assist teachers in analysing and diagnosing students' English learning behaviour, replacing teachers in part to answer students' questions in a timely manner, and automatically grading assignments during the English teaching process. Experimental analysis shows Word Perplexity, Flesch-Kincaid (F-K) Grade Level for Readability, Cosine Similarity for Semantic Coherence, gradient change of NN, validation accuracy, and training accuracy of the proposed technique.
