In Education in 4.0 era, thousands of Edtech platforms and apps have been launched to scaffold educators as facilitators to engage and empower students in their teaching. Flipgrid, an online video-based platform officially released in 2016 by Microsoft boosts social learning and enhances students' engagement from primary schools, secondary schools, to colleges or universities. However, few studies investigating the impacts of incorporating Flipgrid in English language teaching in Vietnamese higher education contexts have been carried out. Teaching Pronunication 2 at Ba Ria - Vung Tau (BRVT) College of Education faces some challenges, namely uneven engagement in class, limited practice time, few feedbacks from instructors. No studies to address such proposed challenges have been conducted at this college. This research examines attitudes of 26 English-majored freshmen at BRVT College of Education towards learning Pronunciation 2 with Flipgrid and what impacts Flipgrid have on students' engagement in pronunciation practice. Data were collected from a survey questionnaire, from case study students via semi-structured interviews, and from their videos submitted on Flipgrid. In these interviews, five students were chosen purposively based on students' responses to the questionnaires and their videos on Flipgrid. The findings of this study reveal students' favourability for using Flipgrid to learn Pronunication 2, an increase in student engagement with pronunciation practice, and the development of learner autonomy which includes aspects of learning motivation and self-confidence.
