Abstract

Optimizing online language instruction models has been more and more essential,
especially during the COVID-19 pandemic era. However, to strive for high-quality online
instruction, students’ perspectives and the real situation of online instruction models must be in
serious consideration. Thus, the purpose of this study was to explore students’ perspectives and
reality on optimizing online language instruction models during the COVID-19 pandemic era. A
mixed methods research design was designated for data collecting: a questionnaire concerned
with three fundamental strategies, with 40 key features; and an in-depth interview. The samples
were 218 KMITL students enrolling in English for Industry during the 2020 academic year. All
of them were voluntary. Various language skills and online setting methods, including how to
access the available technology, and how to access their peers or instructor(s) when attending
virtual class online were trained. Students’ perspectives and the reality of online language
learning instruction models were identified and compared to indicate the similarities and
differences in various features needed for implementing online language instructions. Surprising
findings were revealed and discussed. Finally, the conclusions for instructors who desire to
design and implement online language learning instructions for best practice were provided.
