Therefore,this study had taken place specifically in Sarawak among 71 (n=71) ESL primary school teachers with quantitative study as the research design and survey questionnaire was used as the instrument which was adapted from Aisyah et al. (2018). The findings suggested that respondents have positive perceptions towards the flipped classroom approach. Majority of respondents believe students would gain benefits in various aspects such as increase in responsibilities, discipline, participation, communication and confidence level. The second findings suggested that respondents’ main hurdles and obstacles of the ESL flipped classroom are lack of facilities, lack of students’ readiness and time constraints.This study is significant to shine light on the potential use of this approach into our curriculum especially in Sarawak.
