How does CLIL work?
The basis of CLIL is that content subjects are taught and learnt in a language which is not the mother tongue of the learners.
Knowledge of the language becomes the means of learning content
Language is integrated into the broad curriculum
Learning is improved through increased motivation and the study of natural language seen in context. When learners are interested in a topic they are motivated to acquire language to communicate
CLIL is based on language acquisition rather than enforced learning
Language is seen in real-life situations in which students can acquire the language. This is natural language development which builds on other forms of learning
CLIL is long-term learning. Students become academically proficient in English after 5-7 years in a good bilingual programme
Fluency is more important than accuracy and errors are a natural part of language learning. Learners develop fluency in English by using English to communicate for a variety of purposes
Reading is the essential skill.
