Abstract—With 69 participants taking a course titled Bilingual Education and Teaching in the Department of Teaching Chinese as a Second Language, this project introduces an empirical study which covers two 20-week class experiments under the monitoring of action research in 2015 and 2016. Surveys are administered to elicit the information about the relationships between the FLIPPED-ACTION implementation and the students’ reaction. Cross-analyzing the quantitative data serve as a reference for verifying the degree of effectiveness of course design and an indicator of learning outcome. The result shows that all the paths calculated by the statistic tool are significant (***0.001). The model supports all hypotheses. All features in the model positively affect each other, suggesting that each of the features plays an essential role in building the FLIPPED-ACTION course model which promotes the students’ skills employed in the internship.
