Abstract
In many of the college English listening classrooms across the country, students are passively engaged in class listening tasks and their class performance needs to be improved. This study seeks to bring about improvements in student engagement and performance in the college English listening classroom through the implementation of the flipped model of instruction. Flipped classrooms reverse traditional lecturing because students learn contents before class through readings and prerecorded contents, freeing lectures for problem-solving activities and discussion. The proposed framework discusses problems of English listening teaching in traditional classrooms and puts forward the model of flipped listening classrooms to facilitate the listening class. We hope that this study will shed light on critical issues in understanding teaching English listening with the model of flipped classrooms and in scaling up its implementation in college education.
