Critical Thinking

ELT - English Language Teaching professionals constantly refer to the four abilities of learning – reading, writing, speaking and listening; however, what everyone forgets is that we need the gift of critical thinking to be able to learn in an efficient manner. The Critical Thinking approach allows for students to take learning into their own hands, inductively creating rules and reasoning that generate definitions in their own minds, thus transforming the learning process into a profound and lasting impact on learner memory. Critical Thinking is motivation and represents the first step toward autonomous learning, where students learn how to learn individually and effectively. The result is the raising of our responsibility as English teachers to an even higher level as Educators.
