"CLIL" - a great methodology!

Content and Language Integrated Learning (English Language Learning)

I currently work in a bilingual school which uses CLIL methodology. I wanted to share some information about CLIL with you as I believe it is an extremely successful methodology which has many advantages, both academically and socially.

What is special about CLIL?

•It promotes communication across cultures and prepares learners for being international citizens.
•The course aims to teach language and subject matter simultaneously, with certain subjects being taught in the L2 (second language/non-native language), for example Natural Science is taught in English.
•If English Foreign Languages learners are at initial stages of transition in the immersion class, then the subjects to taught in the L2 should be easier to tackle, such as music, sport or art.

What are the classes like?

•The course should include a variety of material and techniques to reinforce the language.
•The subject determines the language that is taught.
•The language and subject is adjusted to fit the students level.
ACTIVE LEARNING! - Learn by doing
Extra-linguistic input (visual) is a key focus: photos, drawings, time-lines, maps, posters, word banks, and gestures like role play activities, games, demonstration.
Cooperative learning: A good level of interaction between student and teacher, whereby language support is provided when necessary.
•Progress is continually assessed.

Who should teach CLIL?

•Teaching staff at this level can be NON-NEST (native), in contrast they should be specialists in their field of study.
• However, a good command of the (L2) is required, preferably C1.
•For higher levels of immersion (bilingual school), other subjects could be taught in English which require a better command of the L2, including:

Hello! I am a native English speaker from the UK. I am a qualified English teacher with 10 years teaching experience, having taught all levels, nationalities and age groups. I have worked as an official English examiner for more than 3 years now and specialise in preparing students for the Cambridge exams. I provide fun, energetic and interactive classes in a relaxed environment. I give my students continuous feedback on areas which can be improved and how to do it. I make sure they have maximum STUDENT TALKING TIME, and finally, I adapt all of my classes to students needs and requirements. I have taught in England, France, Spain, Guadeloupe and Australia.
