Critical thinking is not only definable but teachable. That’s good news in general, but does this mean critical thinking has a role in ELT? Atkinson questions this notion. He argues that critical thinking should not be taught to language learners because:
- It is neither definable nor teachable.
- It is exclusive and reductive.
- It is culturally-based.
- Critical thinking skills are not transferable.
