Currently, critical thinking is a crucial factor in many educational programs. Online learning and EFL are ever more important due to globalization, digital life, and spread of English worldwide. In addition, a controversy among scholars about whether children can develop critical thinking has been arisen for a long time. Based on literature review, an observation checklist for critical thinking skills has been designed to investigate if young learners develop critical thinking skills in an EFL online classroom. A case study of two primary students has been adopted to do conduct qualitative research. Several findings are as follows: (i) the students’ critical thinking skills have developed after attending the EFL online course, (ii) higher level skills improved slower than lower level skills. Furthermore, some implications to the EFL teachers in training critical thinking skills for young learners are discussed along with acknowledging limitations and providing future research suggestions.
