Product description

CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) has emerged since the millennium as a major trend in education. Written by Do Coyle, Philip Hood and David Marsh and drawing on their experience of CLIL in secondary schools, primary schools and English language schools across Europe, this book gives a comprehensive overview of CLIL. It summarises the theory which underpins the teaching of a content subject through another language and discusses its practical application, outlining the key directions for the development of research and practice. This book acknowledges the uncertainty many teachers feel about CLIL, because of the requirement for both language and subject knowledge, while providing theoretical and practical routes towards successful practice for all.

Key features

  • An expert team of authors, each bringing additional specialised knowledge in the areas of ELT (Marsh), secondary education (Coyle) and primary education (Hood).
  • CLIL is written with both language teachers and subject teachers in mind, and considers the issues both groups have when undertaking CLIL.
  • A chapter on assessment, and another on materials development tackle these complex issues in depth, offering teachers and curriculum developers both theory and practical ideas.
  • The CLIL Teacher's Tool Kit by Do Coyle provides teachers with the framework and tools to plan a CLIL lesson, unit or module suited to their contexts, and then guides them through 6 stages for planning and implementing a successful CLIL programme.
