The amount of content that can be covered in university English classes is severely limited by the 90-minute,16-week maximum time constraint. Presenting a flipped learning environment to students gives them an opportunityto experience the course both inside and outside of the classroom. In the spring of 2016, students at HirosakiUniversity were exposed to courses with a very strong outside-of-class component. Students participated extensivelyon the social format of Moodle, the university’s learning management system (LMS). In addition, they used onlinematerials, including workbooks accompanying their textbook, prepared projects and presentations and studiedcolloquialisms and slang for a special quiz bowl. Detailed student feedback was collected at the end of the course.The feedback indicated that students remained highly invested in the various activities and that they also began tocreate a regular personal English study habit. In short, this paper describes the process of conducting flipped classes and analyzes related student feedback
