Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) for Primary Teachers

This course will improve your ability to explain subjects in simple language that enables your students to understand. You will be offered ways to help your students get the most out of learning in another language. The course will focus on motivational strategies, interactive teaching and materials development. By attending the course, you will gain a broader understanding of the core features of the CLIL approach and have a wide repertoire of techniques and activity ideas for teaching subjects in English. By the end of the course, your ability to plan, teach and assess learning in your CLIL lessons will increase. A pre-course questionnaire will allow trainers to learn about the participants’ backgrounds and professional aims.
