EFL flipped classroom has been receiving increasing popularity compared with the traditional EFL classroom. However, few studies have focused on the comparison of satisfaction levels between the flipped and the non-flipped pedagogies. This study, using a quasi-experimental research design, and randomly selecting participants from undergraduates with different majors, identified the differences in satisfaction between EFL flipped and traditional classrooms. Teachers in this study all received rigid training regarding flipped pedagogy in order to ensure their teaching styles and levels were the same, where reliable data could be elicited. It was concluded that satisfaction in EFL flipped classroom was significantly higher than that in EFL traditional classroom. The results echoed previous research possibly due to its reasonable design and research process. Future research into the changeable variable -satisfaction may be in need of cross-disciplinary cooperation between education, psychology, linguistics and statistics.
