This study aims to investigate the Indonesian EFL (English as a Foreign Language)
teachers‟ conceptions of critical thinking. 59 teachers coming from three different
provinces (Jakarta, Banten, West Java) in Indonesia participated in this study by answering
open-ended questionnaire. The questionnaire asked two questions. The first question asked
whether the participant recognised the term „critical thinking.‟ The second question asked
how the participant conceptualised critical thinking. The study found that only one teacher
who never heard the term critical thinking. With regard to the conceptions of critical, there
were some emerging themes such as analysis, evaluation, criticism, creativity, problem
solving, reflection, curiosity, and even Bloom‟s taxonomy. Findings of this study are
similar to the critical thinking conceptions proposed by Western academics.
