Quantitative and Qualitative research approach was employed for this study including open-ended questioning techniques (Survey and interviews). The results of the study revealed that the use of reflective journal during practicum course for pre-service teachers would enhance creativity, critical thinking, writing skills, and teaching skills, improve their language, and lesson planning.
