A developmental research by Plomp used as the research method to fulfill some criteria in learning model components: learning syntax, social system, management reaction principle, support system and instructional impacts. The design of MT-BMLE learning model is intended to produce three final products: learning model book, teaching kits and research instruments. There were four main stages applied in conducting this developmental research, namely: Preliminary Research, Design and Prototype, Realization and Evaluation. As the result, this study produced a valid, practical and effective MT-BMLE Model in English language learning for elementary learners in rural learning area by providing English Lesson Plans, teaching materials, teachers and students’ guide books, students’ worksheets and teaching media designed by the teachers. Consequently, students are more active in English learning, increasing vocabulary mastery and having high positive responses to learn English in remote learning environment.
