The purposes of this research were to study the learning achievement of non-Japanese major students taught using the Flipped Classroom approach in the teaching of Basic Japanese 1. The sample consisted of 33 non-Japanese major students that had studied in the first semester and 35 students that had studied in the second semester of academic year 2015. The two classrooms were assigned as the control group and the experimental group. The experimental instrument consisted of lesson plans using the Flipped Classroom method for the experimental group and normal plans for the control group. The data collecting instrument included a learning achievement test and a satisfaction questionnaire on the Flipped Classroom approach. The data were analyzed using statistical methods to find the mean value, the standard deviation, and the t-test score. The result showed that the learning achievement of the students in the experimental group and that of the control group were not significantly different at the .05 level. However, the learning achievement of the students that had no previous study experience with Japanese was significantly higher than that of students that had learned under a conventional instruction method at the .05 level.
