This study investigated how a Community Language Learning (CLL) approach, when utilised via new technology with the social network Facebook, can be most effective in a flipped EFL classroom. Curran  claims his CLL approach can reduce learner anxiety and insecurity. One feature of CLL is that trusting relationships are established not only between students and teachers but also among students themselves, and a learning community based on trusting relationships is claimed as the key element for the successful learning of foreign languages. Meanwhile, computer and mobile technologies have grown increasingly influential in many areas, including education. Flipped learning, a learning model first proposed by Sams and Bergmann , is becoming widespread globally, and mobile technology makes flipped classrooms both feasible and moveable. Liao and Fu’s study  showed that task rehearsal in computer-mediated communication does enhance learners’ performances. Thus, this study focused on learner anxiety and language performance issues.
