The English Language has always played an important role in the teaching and learning process of academics and research across the globe. Hence, young learners of the twenty-first century are expected to possess a good level of proficiency in English. The aim of this study is to effectively use digital language learning platforms to upskill entry-level tertiary learners by adopting the newly proposed flipped innovation [FINN] model. The objective is to influence learners to get actively involved in the learning process, adopt outcome-based learning strategies and experience the realization of their goals by integrating modern tools in language learning. This learner-centric technology-enabled skills enhancement initiative will provide learners with a flexible, collaborative learning environment that will also lead them to record new learning strategies and find plausible solutions that will guide them to overcome issues related to the skills development process. © Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd. 2019.
