Abstract: The paper entitled “Flipped Classroom: A Paradigm Shift in English Language Teaching” discusses about the need of flipping the English language classroom. The flipped classroom is a teaching model which is now being flourished around the globe. Implementation of the flipped classroom doesn’t cost much but it demands the instructor to prepare herself with a video lecture before the class. The classroom activity keeps aside the lecturing part and is meant for activities. The paper tries to emphasize the need of implementing flipped classrooms in English language teaching. It elucidates how this language teaching model is different from the traditional language teaching methodologies. It also puts forth the pros and cons of the new teaching model.
