As a visual method of thinking illustration, mind mapping can combine the characteristics of human brain’s divergent thinking with different ways of rich colors, lines and graphics, and display knowledge hierarchically in the form of structural graphs according to different themes, emphases and relevance, so as to promote human brain’s understanding and memory of knowledge. While flipped classroom is an innovative teaching model, it changes the traditional teaching process. The combination of mind mapping and flipped classroom in college English class can not only satisfy students’ increasingly mature learning autonomy, but also adapt to the divergent thinking of language culture required by English learning itself, which also can better cultivate the independent learning ability, research ability and creation of college students. As a result, the application of mind mapping in flipped classroom of college English class provides a new attempt for the reform of classroom teaching in colleges, which lays a foundation for the sustainable development of students as well.
