One new form of pedagogy, known as the flipped classroom, extends and enhances learning and accommodates different learning styles. The flipped classroom employs technology to offer course materials online 24 hours/day and to promote active class learning. However, will Taiwanese students who are used to more traditional instructional methods embrace the flipped classroom using E-learning? The researcher compares a flipped classroom model using E-learning and the traditional-lecture model. A pre-and post-test and a questionnaire were utilized to examine the effect of the flipped classroom on Taiwanese college students. The test results showed that the flipped approach had a positive effect on learners' English proficiency level, topical knowledge, and willingness to participate in class.
