The last article is a study about “A Blended Learning Approach to Enhance College Students’ Vocabulary Learning”. It is written by Djiwandono, and released on 2013, Vol. 10, No. 2, pp. 210–220 from Electronic Journal of Foreign Language Teaching. The credentials of the authors are not specifically stated in the articles except Vasbieva et al. The central argument of the articles was to investigate the effects of the blended learning approach to teach and learn English vocabulary. Therefore, this critique was designed to produce a systematic review of studies contrasting vocabulary learning outcomes for either blended learning conditions or with those of full face-to-face classroom instruction.
