This survey paper highlights some advances and challenges in robots that learn to carry out tasks from verbal interaction with humans, possibly combined with physical manipulation of their environment. We first describe what robots have learnt from verbal interaction, and how do they do it. We then enumerate a list of research limitations to motivate future work in this challenging and exciting multidisciplinary area. This brief survey points out the need of bringing robots out of the lab, into uncontrolled conditions, in order to investigate their usability and acceptance by end users.
