“We know that there are social, economic, cultural and ecological advantages to be gained through promoting plurilingualism through language learning right across our societies. CLIL offers one additional means by which to give our youngsters the opportunities to develop their capacity to use language and to reap the benefits in their present and future lives.” (David Marsh)
CLIL – Content and Language Integrated Learning -- has a huge impact on teaching/learning, with great advantages both for the foreign language and for subjects which are taught in that language.
According to the latest Eurydice report "Keydata on teaching languages in Europe" (2012), CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) provision is spreading more and more all over Europe.
In the Italian secondary school curriculum, there has been a great innovation in the frame of a reform issued by the Ministry of Education, University and Research: starting from 2012, CLIL (the teaching of a curriculum subject in a foreign language) was introduced in the third year of “Licei Linguistici”, while in all the other upper secondary schools, this new methodology was introduced in the fifth year, beginning from 2014-15.
The teaching of a subject through a foreign language has become an integrated part of the secondary school curriculum.
“So get your Tarot cards out, polish your crystal balls. Is CLIL the present? The future (perfect)? The soon-to-be-past?” Jeremy Harmer
Weekly webinars with national and international CLIL experts will be a highlight of this session, with each speaker moderating a follow-up discussion in the session forum. A Moodle platform will be used for this session: http://moodle4teachers.org/course/view.php?id=90
