Abstract: Along with technology advancements, the Malaysian education system needs to be transformed from a traditional system to an environment that is technology-based. In the Malaysian context, English is considered a second language to be acquired, thus barely practiced by students outside classroom or in daily life. Using Gagne's theory, this study aims to identify the teaching and learning (T&L) processes carried out when using a flipped classroom (FC) approach. Findings show that students have positive responses toward the T&L processes using a FC approach. Three themes emerged during the interview process - children's learning, video lectures and learning guidance. Thus, the contributions of the paper are to encourage the future English kindergarten teachers to implement FC in their T&L practices.

Keywords: flipped classroom; FC; pre-school students; English; teaching and learning process; Gagne's theory.
