www.brookemead-elt.co.uk CLIL works in 3 ways: Language of learning – analysis of content, grammar, vocabulary, structures, syllabus Language for learning – cognitive skills – listening, speaking Language through learning – developing thinking skills, general knowledge, broader vocabulary, imagination, creativity, new directions (ICT, widening horizons, intellectual risk-taking), self-confidence, fluency and literacy Source: Dr Do Coyle, University of Nottingham 1999

www.brookemead-elt.co.uk Key features of CLIL Language learning and content learning supporting each other – subject integration, making more than the sum of its parts Authenticity – using current media to bring global issues into the classroom Active learning – students exchange views among themselves Student centered – teachers are facilitators while students learn by doing Building on student’s own knowledge, skills, attitudes, interests and experience. Challenging students to be creative, intellectually adventurous, to develop as articulate citizens as well as linguists. Source: Mehisto, Marsh, Frigols, Macmillan 2008
www.brookemead-elt.co.uk CLIL – what age & levels? Accessibility – topics should be adapted according to age and sophistication level of students Authenticity - language tasks should be relevant to the age / ability level of students (QSE - 3 levels) Vocabulary – CLIL gives reasons for students to widen and deepen their own vocabulary As globalization affects everyone, CLIL helps to develop: Political awareness, citizenship Political awareness, citizenship Economic awareness Economic awareness Historical awareness Historical awareness Cultural (and inter-cultural) awareness Cultural (and inter-cultural) awareness
www.brookemead-elt.co.uk CLIL: The ultimate communicative methodology “CLIL is an approach to bilingual education in which both curriculum and content – such as science or geography – and English are taught together… Hence it is a means of teaching curriculum subjects through the medium of the language still being learned” “CLIL can also be regarded … as a means of teaching English through the study of a specialist content” “CLIL is regarded … as the ultimate communicative methodology” Source: Graddol, English Next, British Council, 2006
www.brookemead-elt.co.uk Coyle’s claims from CLIL research: Raises linguistic competence and confidence Raises teacher and learner expectations Involves risk-taking and problem-solving Motivates and encourages independence Improves L1 literacy Encourages linguistic spontaneity Develops study skills, concentration Positive attitudes, gender issues motivation Develops thinking skills Puts culture back on the agenda Increases vocabulary learning skills
www.brookemead-elt.co.uk CLIL: today’s topics in QSE Cross-curricular topics of the modern syllabus: Business Studies, Health and Fitness, Psychology, Law, ICT. Traditional curriculum subjects: Mathematics, Sciences, Geography, History. Often the students will know as much (or even more) about the topic as the language teacher – good! They talk to the class about the topic in English. They are the experts in the topic (and the language). They discover and use the vocabulary they already have (science, technology, social life, computers - cognates) Students are learning by doing: “Tell me and I’ll remember for an hour; Show me and I’ll remember for a day; But let me do it and I’ll remember it forever.
