Thematic area: Content and language education

Approaches to teaching content through languages, Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and bilingual education are increasingly popular across Europe, but teacher training programmes for language teachers with an explicit focus on CLIL remain rare and, for subject teachers, almost non-existent. It has been claimed that the implementation of CLIL is outpacing a measured debate about the impact on students and teachers of using an L2 as the medium of instruction.
How can the content of conventional foreign language classes further contribute to overall aims like intercultural competence or learner autonomy?
When evaluating student performance, should there be a focus on language or content?
What is the place of content in vocational language courses?
What would a model CLIL teacher training look like?
Some of the projects in this section also aim to encourage the use of CLIL in languages other than English.
