This action research spanned from February 2019 to June 2019. Taking the 130 students of integrated English class of College of International Business (CIB) of Zhejiang Yuexiu Foreign Languages University (ZYUFL) as samples, this paper adopted qualitative research methods, through the analysis of log observation and reflection reports, combining with comparisons of the quantitative online data. This paper drew the conclusion that the O2O blended learning based on flipped classroom in the integrated English class was the practice of innovative teaching mode and it created interactive classes of integrated English.

In addition, if more teacher training opportunities were available, and if the teaching facilities and environment could be improved, the effect of this teaching mode should be more significant.
