WHAT IS CLIL:
Content-based teaching model is a language teaching method that proposes to integrate language teaching into content teaching. CLIL is one of the most popular foreign language teaching methods today. While teaching the content of different courses such as Mathematics, History, Geography, Science, Social Sciences, Citizenship, it also covers the teaching of a foreign language. In other words, there is teaching using a foreign language, not teaching a foreign language at its core. This method, which is used extensively in Canada and America, has gradually become widespread in Europe.
Who is this course for?
Our CLIL course is designed for teachers who want or are already teaching content subjects such as History, Science or Mathematics, for example, in English.
How will this course help you improve?
This CLIL course will give you a solid foundation in CLIL if you're a newly qualified teacher in the ELT' field and will help you build on your existing skills if you're already working in the field. You will look at how to incorporate EFL (English as a Foreign Language) techniques into subject teaching to help students understand instructions, materials, and explanations.
