CLIL stands for Content and Language Integrated Learning and refers to teaching subjects such as history and geography to students through a foreign language.
This introductory Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) course is for teachers who are currently teaching, or preparing to teach, an academic subject in English. Academic subjects include Geography, History, Biology, Economics, Citizenship, to name but a few. Morning sessions focus on language development where participants gain confidence in using English. The afternoon Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) methodology sessions introduce fresh and communicative approaches to teaching your subject through English.
This course uses a wide variety of communicative activities to develop language competence and also builds students’ confidence in teaching through English. Participants will have the opportunity to expand specific subject vocabulary as well as participate in practical group methodology sessions which provide them with ideas and materials that they can use upon their return to their own country. They will take part in seminars, workshops, lectures, open discussions and a study visit during term time (e.g. a primary or secondary school) or a place of cultural interest (non-term time). The exact content of the course is negotiated before and throughout the course to take into account the specific needs and developing interests of each group.
