Technology has now become a central part of the field of teaching. The flipped classroom is a modern instructional method in which students watch videos on their own and teachers spend the classroom time engaging their students in different activities, quizzes, presentations, feedback, questions, and discussions. Different universities in Pakistan have incorporated this learning method in their classrooms and specifically in language classrooms in 2020 during the post Covid-19 environment. The chief purpose behind this investigation is to examine the perceptions of students about flipped learning for ESL learners. This research is conducted in the milieu of framework given by Chen et al. (2014). This research is quantitative in which a cross-sectional survey research design is used. Through the questionnaire a sample of 200 students was taken for this research. The responses of the students were processed through the SPSS software. The results show that flipped learning (FL) is a new technique of teaching. Most of the students use this technique but are unfamiliar with its name. The students have positively perceived the technique of flipped learning and this research would be useful for teachers, researchers, and students. Lastly, this research would be valuable for operative teaching.
