Since the concept of flipped classroom became a hot topic in 2011, it has been practiced in China for 5 years. At present, China has formed a number of online resources and project resources, such as Super Star Video Teaching Network, which provide a rich resource environment for the teaching practice of flipped classroom [1]. Many colleges and universities gradually carry out the flipped classroom teaching mode. However, many students in colleges and universities are resistant to flipped classroom. In order to investigate the reasons for the negative attitude of college students toward flipped classroom, this study conducted an interview survey with seven students from different colleges and universities, with different majors and more experience in flipped classroom. Through the analysis of the interview scripts, it is found that there are problems such as biased teacher's orientation, generalized micro-class videos and lack of in-depth classroom interaction in the application of flipped classroom mode in colleges and universities, and the corresponding improvement measures for the application of flipped classroom in colleges and universities are proposed in response to the problems.
