  18. 18. Quote from Student Ive just finished reviewing lecture …for the second time. I personally like this flip classroom so far. I can spend my time study as much as I want and flip classroom makes my study livelier. Reading text book alone can be bored some time. As…English learner…, I have some difficulties catching something in class. Flip classroom helps me a lot. However, I still like to go to class and have real conversation with Dr. M and my classmates.3/31/2013
