Abstract

With the advent of the information age and new literal arts, the traditional class learn-ing model and the e-learning cannot meet the needs of English learning. Under such circumstance, the blended learning model is widely applied since 2020. This paper aims to investigate the status quo of the application and effect of blended learning model, adopting questionnaire as research method with 207 participants of English majors in second year in G college. The research shows that the application of blend-ed learning is at a medium level (M=65.64%); and it has achieved a certain success mainly reflected in the improvement of students’ interest in active communication be-tween teachers and students (M=79.36%). A majority of students (84.72%) believe that online listening materials are convenient for repeating, dictating and review; most students think through blended learning model class, their abilities and skills of Eng-lish listening and speaking has been improved in some degree. But the teachers’ time-ly feedback (24.56%) is not satisfactory. In addition, this paper also analyzes the inte-rior and exterior factors influencing the application and the effect of blended learning from the aspects of students, teachers, school management and digital environment, and accordingly provides feasible suggestions to improve effectiveness of it, which will be helpful in the enhancement of education justice and lifelong learning through digital empowerment.
