With the rapid advancement of modern technology, the restructuring of pedagogical teaching is necessitated. Blended learning is one of the recent approaches to teaching which gained massive popularity. In recent years, many studies have been conducted in English teaching instruction; however, research on its application to English as a second language (ESL) oral communication instruction is scarce. The present study reports on the effectiveness of blended learning using video blogs to ESL's oral communication skills. The mixed-methods design was used to collect quantitative and qualitative data. To determine the impact of a blended learning model to ESL's oral communication ability, pretest and posttest were administered to measure improvement. The results of the quantitative data revealed that the implementation of blended learning using video blogs improved students' oral proficiency in terms of pronunciation, fluency, syntax, lexical range and general use of the English language. The qualitative data, on the other hand, indicated the positive attitude of students toward the blended learning experience. © 2019 IEEE.
