In particular, this research found that BL has met students’ satisfactions such as enhancing students’ English language skills, assisting students’ collaborative learning, and creating interesting and interactive learning. Furthermore, it reflects the teacher and students’ interactions and provides sufficient time for the students to do their tasks.
