  • 12. <ul><li>Language use is a creative act:we transform thoughts into language that can be heard or seen. We are capable of producing sentences and even long texts that we have never heard or seen before. By giving learners creative exercises, we get them to practise an important sub-skill of using a language: thinking creatively.</li></ul>By Mehmet TUNAZ<br />
