CONTENT & LANGUAGE INTEGRATED LEARNING
This is for teachers who want to learn to teach a school curriculum subject in a foreign language. The course explores the techniques and methodology underlying CLIL. This course is for teachers who would like to deeply study CLIL and are confident in their own language ability. If you are wanting also to focus particularly on your own language ability then our CLIL & English language training may be more appropriate.
This Course comprises of 40 contact morning hours as well as 2 afternoon workshops and an extensive cultural and social programme which is directly linked to the morning sessions.
Content and language integrated learning (CLIL) programs combine teaching content from a particular curriculum area (e.g. science) with the explicit teaching of a target language (e.g. Spanish).There is a focus on the vocabulary and structures required for the additional curriculum area. Content may include all or part of one or more curriculum areas. CLIL has the advantage of addressing the ‘crowded curriculum’ issue as it enables one or more curriculum areas to be taught in and through an additional language, and thereby extends the time on task for language learning. It also works by promoting transverse skills important for learning in the 21st century. This course in addition to formal classroom learning also contains informal/ “insitu” learning in the form of cultural activities as well as international networking opportunities for teachers to mix with other teachers from all over the EU.
This teaching development course has been designed around the objectives of ERASMUS + key action 1 with the aim of increasing the internationalisation and modernisation of schools and the strength of the teaching profession. As a result it also aims to increase the attainment of multilingualism in students through effective teaching with the hope to decrease unemployment and school drop across the EU.
COURSE STARTS ON 13th August 2018
