CLIL metholodogy & the use of ICT
'CLIL refers to situations where subjects, or parts of subjects, are taught through a foreign language with dual-focussed aims, namely the learning of content, and the simultaneous learning of a foreign language'. (Marsh, 1994)

This approach involves learning subjects such as history, geography or others, through an additional language. It can be very successful in enhancing the learning of languages and other subjects, and developing in the youngsters a positive ‘can do’ attitude towards themselves as language learners. (Marsh, 2000)

No es trabajar lo mismo pero en L2

Implica cambios en la metodología de trabajo y preparación y en la metodología en el aula
"El Aprendizaje Integrado de Lenguas Extranjeras y otros Contenidos Curriculares implica estudiar asignaturas como la historia o las ciencias naturales en una lengua distinta de la propia. AICLE resulta muy beneficioso tanto para el aprendizaje de otras lenguas (francés, inglés,...) como para las asignaturas impartidas en dichas lenguas.

El énfasis de AICLE en la “resolución de problemas” y “saber hacer cosas” hace que los estudiantes se sientan motivados al poder resolver problemas y hacer cosas incluso en otras lenguas." (Navés y Muñoz, 2000)




English 693
French 57
German 12
Other bilingual programmes in Andalucía:
Chinese language programme

CLIL Approach
What is CLIL?
1. CLIL is new
2. CLIL is structured around the content/topic.
3. Teachers need to have a strong background in science, geography, history, etc. as well as ELT for teaching CLIL.
4. CLIL uses English as a medium to teach other subject areas
5. There is no predetermined language syllabus in CLIL.
6. CLIL focuses on fluency and communication

Canadian immersion model,
but a more flexible approach within our European context that presents a variety of models that respond to different situations and demands.

An approach which pursues
to strengthen the teaching of specific contents of particular areas
already taught in the first language, but an approach whose first objective is to get students to learn new contents through L2.

A methodology which focuses on
learning a language taking advantage of curricular
of other areas.


A threat for content subject teachers.
Although in some schools they have understood so, the ideal CLIL teacher is the one who is both, a specialist in a given subject and in language teaching = Content subjetc + Language command.

An approach that aims at teaching
what students already know in their mother tongue,
now in the foreign language.

A passing fad

A bilingual program, in its traditional sense.

An elitist program aimed to the most outstanding students.
On the contrary, as it emphasizes both language and content, it is suitable for all types of students.
Course 2014-15:

What are
bilingual schools?
1. Percentage of European countries, CLIL
within pilot projects'
2. Unique CLIL model?
3. What´s "learning by construction"
in this context?
