Hands on What's CLIL? “It teaches aspects of subject topics which students learn in their other school classes, such as Science, Maths, Geography and Music, using English as the medium of instruction.” ‘Content-based instruction',
‘English across the curriculum',
‘Bilingual education‘ (Canadian model)
‘Immersion programmes’ (Comprehensible input) “What immersion has taught us is that comprehensible subject matter teaching is language teaching – the subject matter class is a language class if made comprehensible”

Stephen Krashen Comprehensible Input It provides a new learning experience (the curricular subject and the language are taught together).
