The term English Language Teaching (ELT) brings the notion of a formal instructional system which includes classrooms, teachers, learners, syllabi, examinations, etc. Teaching is a learning experience for the teacher as well as the learners. An important skill of a teacher is the ability to observe behaviour or to reflect in a learning environment. Reflective teaching is a personal tool that teachers can use to observe and evaluate the way they teach in their classroom. When a teacher reflects, they increase their knowledge of the subject and methods to observe meaningful patterns of classroom activity contributing in their overall professional development. This paper investigates the reflective teaching classroom practices and its implications in an English language classroom.
