Abstract

There is a growing body of literature that emphasizes the significance of creative thinking in the globalized and interconnected world of 21st century. Developing the ability to think creatively helps enrich our lives, achieve success and have a prosperous society. Therefore, the development of the skill should be a fundamental part of education throughout all levels and across all subjects. Language education is no exception. Language learning classes that encourage creative thinking help learners develop not only intellectually but also emotionally and socially. The main purpose of this paper is to present the implications of engaging students’ creative thinking in language learning classes with reference to English language. We discuss a new perspective about the process of language learning and focus on how engaging students’ creative thinking can make learning other languages meaningful, enriching and engaging.
