One way to overcome this academic predicament is by facilitating reading and writing classes in ESL using flash fiction. Flash fiction, which is characterized by its brief presentation and authentic contents, offers some advantages for ESL teachers to make use of it to increase students’ reading and writing skills. This paper provides reviews of concepts that underlies the use of flash fiction in promoting students’s reading proficiency and critical thinking, henceforth, spurring their own creation of imaginative works by modeling a very short structure and style elements in well-scaffolded activities.
