CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) Essentials

Sobre este curso

Our online CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) Essentials course is designed for experienced primary and secondary school teachers, either language teachers supporting subject teachers or subject teachers working in a CLIL context, and introduces a variety of methodologies and practical strategies to use in the classroom.

The course will help you to:

  • anticipate problems and select language to support understanding
  • break down information into manageable chunks
  • design tasks to increase communication
  • provide learner training strategies to help learners recognise and improve their own weaknesses
  • clarify whether assessment is based on content or linguistic abilities and providing relevant (personalised) feedback.

Teachers learn to use model language, evaluate language challenges in the classroom, develop enquiry-based learning and improve assessment methods and feedback. Practical examples throughout the course reflect a range of subjects and age groups.

Course structure

The course consists of 20 units, each taking approximately 2.5 hours.

The units are divided into 2 modules:

  • Module 1 – Knowledge and principles of CLIL (6 units)
  • Module 2 – Lesson preparation, lesson delivery and assessment (14 units)
