The adoption of online learning is continuously growing in the post-COVID-19 pandemic era in the Algerian context. In this account, teachers and academicians tend to change and adjust their teaching pedagogies to fit this type of learning to ensure a high quality of education. Two crucial pedagogical approaches are blended learning and flipped classrooms, which depend on online and face-to-face learning processes. The actual research implements this approach in different subjects taught in a limited four face-to-face courses during the post-pandemic period. The central aim of this paper is to investigate the extent of efficacy of blended learning in combination with the flipped classroom in Algerian foreign language classes. The hypothesis set is that blended learning combined with the flipped online classroom assists learners to a great extent in their learning. To gain empirical data, grids of observation were used by the researchers. The sample of this research consists of 165 learners who belong to different educational levels at both Batna-1 University and Barika’s University Center, Algeria. One of the significant findings of this investigation reveals that blended learning and flipped classrooms efficiently promote a high quality of learning among learners. Likewise, the results indicate that the embedment of this teaching approach reinforces learners’ adoption of online learning.
