The results revealed that the adoption of the flipped learning approach had a positive impact on the participants’ listening skills and the development of their autonomy; they contributed to the improvement of the teaching and learning process in aspects such as flexible environment, learning culture, intentional content and professional, educator; students had the opportunity to improve on individual variation, contextualized additional activities, motivation and strategic dimension; and to develop autonomous behavior such as responsibility, accessibility, active participation, prior knowledge and self-reflection.
