It has been suggested that learning by being told in a natural language may be what makes human intelligence unique.* A.s.a. H. has done this for some time now.** One early example was A.s.a. learning "Obstacle, slow down, turn left." A.s.a. hears/reads this sentence and does what its been told.** A.s.a. also uses natural language to report back to me things that it has learned.
