Abstract—With the global interest in computers, innovative teaching methods have been oriented to English language learning environments. The objectives of this research were to compare the effectiveness of the three English teaching methods, i.e. e-learning, blended learning, and traditional instruction and assess students’ satisfaction. The samples were 90 first year vocational certificate students who enrolled on an English course in the academic year 2013 at Ban Hong Community Education College, Thailand. Those students were divided into three groups of 30, i.e. two experimental groups and one control group by using simple random sampling. The first experimental group was taught through e-learning instruction, the second experimental group was taught through blended learning instruction, whereas the control group was taught through traditional instruction. The study was conducted two hours a week for eight weeks period. The main findings indicated that blended learning instruction can significantly increase the students’ achievement scores and the students show highly positive satisfaction towards learning language English.
