WHAT IS CLIL?
Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is an innovative educational approach that combines language acquisition with content. This dual-focused model enables learners to enhance their knowledge of a subject and practice their English-language skills at the same time.
WHO IS CLIL FOR?
The course is aimed at Primary School teachers who have no, little or wide experience in delivering CLIL lessons. It is a highly interactive course that provides a balance of teaching methodologies and practical ideas that can be replicated in the classroom.
COURSE INFORMATION (number of lessons per week)
1) 20 English Lessons
Apart from CLIL, participants will have the opportunity to increase their English language competence. The English lessons promote fluency in speaking and writing, grammar and vocabulary building, pronunciation and listening practice.
2) 8 CLIL Lessons
The CLIL course consists of 5 modules. Each module takes 2 weeks to complete and it is designed so that it facilitates the needs of both learners and teachers. During these two weeks, the participants will reflect on and update their teaching skills, develop their confidence in content and language and prepare for future lessons. All CLIL lessons offer supportive teaching, visual aids and ICT applications that can be personalised. Types of modules:
- Module 1: Introduction to CLIL and Didactics
- Module 2: Developing Learner and Teacher Skills
- Module 3: Learner Engagement and Assessment
- Module 4: Digital Literacy and Materials Evaluation
- Module 5: Social and Emotional Education
In addition to your lessons, participants will get the access to our Online Learning Platform. Teachers will be required to take KITE pre-arrival test so we can arrange their class placements before arrival.
On successful completion of all 5 modules of this course participants will have deepened their understanding of:
- Benefits and challenges of CLIL

- Teaching and learning-centred classrooms
- Students’ attitudes to learning
- Differentiation in the classroom
