Main Article Content
This study aims to reveal the perceptions of the students about asynchronous distance learning (ADL) and blended learning (BL). Two groups of freshmen were included in the current study; the first group was taught English through ADL and the second group was taught English through BL which refers to the combination of face-to-face instruction and ADL process in the current study. In order to collect data, seven students were chosen from the ADL group and six students were chosen from the BL group. Semi-structured interviews were carried out with 13 students one by one. The results showed that the students in the ADL group were not pleased with being taught at a distance. On the other hand, the BL process was favoured by all of the BL students included in the interviews.
