What is CLIL?

  • Why is CLIL important?
  • What are the advantages?
  • How is it done?
  • Case study: a CLIL lesson
slide3

What is CLIL?

  • Teaching non-linguistic subjects in English
  • 2 scenarios:
    • Content teacher teaches in English
    • English teacher uses content lessons
    • Using languages to learn and learning
    • to use languages
slide4

Importance of CLIL?

slide6

CLIL advantages

  • Motivation
  • Places language at centre of curriculum
  • Background knowledge
  • Holistic approach to learning
  • Meaningful contexts
  • Time saving: more exposure to language
  • Variety of teaching methods
slide7

CLIL methodology

  • Text based
  • Four skills
      • Reading: main input method
      • Listening: secondary input
      • Speaking: communication
      • Writing: output / linguistic recycling
  • Lexical approach
slide8

Lexical approach

  • Unifying principle behind language is collocation NOT grammar
  • Key skill of ‘noticing’
  • Subject specific / academic / other
  • CLIL materials encourage noticing language within texts
slide9

CLIL lesson

The Boeing 777 is a long-range, wide-body twin-engine airliner built by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. The world's largest twinjet and commonly referred to as the ‘Triple Seven’, it can carry between 283 and 368 passengers in a three-class configuration and has a range from 5,235 to 9,450 nautical miles (9,695 to 17,500 km). Distinguishing features of the 777 include the six wheels on each main landing gear, its circular fuselage cross section, the largest diameter turbofan engines of any aircraft, the pronounced ‘neck’ aft of the flight deck, and the blade-like end to the tail cone.

As of July 2008, 56 customers have placed orders for 1,088 777s. Direct market competitors to the 777 are the Airbus A330-300, A340, and A350 XWB, which is currently under development. The 777 may eventually be replaced by a new product family, the Boeing Y3, which would draw upon technologies from the 787.
