Abstract

This article was written based on two major aims. One aim was to review the texts on English-related policies and problems in Thailand; co-teaching; and blended learning. Another aim was to propose a concept integrating co-teaching and blended learning into new teaching models to improve students’ English skills. This article utilized the construct of a literature study. The data were derived from existing documents including relevant books, researches, and articles. After being collected, the gathered texts were analyzed and reviewed. From the reviews were acquired novel possible models. This literature study found that both co-teaching and blended learning have been deployed to facilitate English language learning. Eliciting from the two concepts, three possible models were introduced, namely the co-station rotation model, the co-lab rotation model, and the co-flipped classroom model.
