In language learning, educational researchers often mention English skills such as speaking, reading, and writing. However, there are still barriers to learning non-native languages for students. Flipped teaching is a relatively new teaching method in English teaching that changes the order of lectures and homework in the classroom, supplementing it with additional teaching resources in addition to simple classroom instruction.Differentiated teaching in English teaching brings flexibility to the flipped classroom teaching method, which requires the teaching ability of excellent teachers and the popularization of technology to achieve. It is not easy for families with different financial conditions to have multiple learning devices. After the teaching technology is satisfied, the flipped teaching method in English teaching needs to be widely implemented. Therefore, considering the advantages and disadvantages of the flipped teaching method, teachers should integrate various teaching methods to provide different content and different types of English knowledge in a targeted manner to achieve efficient and happy learning results for students.
