Summary

“Critical thinking” is the buzzword. Everyone talks about it. The academia and other authorities want teachers to teach it – no matter what subject they teach – it’s the invisible part of the curriculum. But what exactly is critical thinking? How exactly can we, as language teachers, teach it? In this talk, I would like to share some of my ideas and encourage you share some of yours.
