Abstract: For almost 20 years Polish universities have been introducing more and more classes based on educational platforms. Such classes are conducted in different forms, as full distance (e-learning), joining traditional meeting with online learning (blended learning) or as supporting traditional process, by for example placing exercises on the platform, tests that allow self-evaluation. The richness of materials available within the WWW network encourages teachers to create a flow of educational process on the base of different multimedia and reaching for methods and forms of classes not previously used. Especially interesting is in such a situation the use of blended learning which is considered the most effective form of distance learning mainly due to the fact that it allows: keeping direct interpersonal relationships during classes, individualisation of the learning process and due to taking into account learners' different sensory perceptions. This article presents some research results conducted among students learning English in a blended learning form. The authors will try to give answer to the question whether while classes conducted in this form sensory perceptions and the used method influence getting knowledge and its permanence.
