The most important thing to me is to get them to adapt themselves to talk, and to think in English.
ET : Is there any activity that you give to your students to sharpen their critical thinking skills?
Ms. Umi : Yes, I provide my students with games such as words jumble, continuing stories and jigsaw. Their critical thinking ability is improved and one of the indicators is they are able to ask and answer questions that require explanation or questions with higher difficulty level in English.
