  24. CLIL: it’s not new(Content and Language Integrated Learning) • All teachers are teachers of language Source: Bullock, 1975 • Linguistic content is inseparable from linguistic expression. Source: Mohan, 1986 • We use language to learn as well as to communicate. Source: McGuiness, 1999 • In the CLIL curriculum, it is the subject matter which determines the language to be learned. Source: CLIL in Austria, 2005 www.brookemead-elt.co.uk

  25. CLIL: The 4 Cs What is CLIL? • The 4Cs Teaching Framework • Content (subject matter, projects, themes) • Communication (language and language awareness) • Cognition (thinking about what is being said and reacting to it) • Culture (citizenship, personal development, awareness of global issues – economic, historical, political) Source: Dr Do Coyle, University of Nottingham 1999 www.brookemead-elt.co.uk

  26. 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

  27. Various types of CLIL • Language-led – using content (topics) to illustrate various language points • Language teachers: using materials dictated by language syllabus • Cross-curricular language – using content from various curriculum areas • Language teachers: using materials in parallel with other disciplines • Bi-lingual education • Subject teachers: (sometimes with language teachers) using full subject curriculum in the target language. Source: Dellar and Price, OUP 2007 www.brookemead-elt.co.uk

  28. 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

  29. 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 • Economic awareness • Historical awareness • Cultural (and inter-cultural) awareness www.brookemead-elt.co.uk

  30. 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

  31. 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

  32. 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.
