English language teaching has seen a great shift from a teacher-fronted instruction towards more flexible, active, engaging, and learner-centered teaching models that reduce the limitations and issues of traditional teaching models. One of these models is flipped learning, which is a form of blended learning where students learn new content or lessons at home, and do what used to be called homework in their classroom collaboratively. This model, which has recently been developed and is based on Bloom's taxonomy of learning, has been put forth to maximize the quality of learner-centered teaching model. Unfortunately, there is very little research on this newly-developed model in EFL environment, especially in Turkey. With this in mind, this study aims to examine Turkish students' perceptions of and attitudes towards flipped learning through a questionnaire before and after the course. Also, there will be two intermediate classes, one acting as the experimental group in which the flipped classroom model will be administered. In the control group, the traditional teaching model will be used. Finally, the passing grades of the students in the control and experimental groups will be compared to see if there is a significant difference.
