  1. 1. Applications of CLT<br />Task-Based/Cooperative Approach<br />&<br />Content Language Integrated Learning: A new dimension in Language Learning<br />Ignacio Bravo & Alberto Delano.<br />
  2. 2. Task-based language learning<br />Focuses on the use of authentic language and on asking students to do meaningful tasks using the target language<br />Allows for more meaningful communication<br />provides for practical extra-linguistic skill building<br />Task-based language learning is on output<br />students are only exposed to certain forms of language<br />

  4. 4. Content Language Integrated Learning.<br />Content through Language<br />Origins: New Conception of Language Learning for a New World<br />-CLIL tackles the needs for massive and thorough language learning in a globalized world<br />-CLIL also tackles the communicative needs of the Knowledge/Information era.<br />
  5. 5. Origins: Historical Overview.<br /><ul><li>CLIL arising from political needs: The Canadian Case
  6. 6. CLIL as a means to revolutionize education: The European Union’s case</li></ul>CLIL as a concept adopted in 1994 by Marsh, Maljers and Hartiala to describe the method.<br />
  7. 7. CLIL<br />Theoretical Concepts<br />CLIL is not<br />-Content learning in another language.<br />-Traditional language teaching disguised as content learning.<br />The question is How to apply CLIL as <br />for:<br />Content Learning<br />Language Learning.<br />
  8. 8. Content Learning Aspects in CLIL<br /><ul><li>Classroom must be dialogical in nature and cooperative oriented.</li></ul>Cognitive approach is key: Learner should achieve lower and higher order thinking processes in the CLIL subject<br />From Memorizing and Understanding<br />To Analyzing and Creating.<br />
  9. 9. Language Learning Aspects<br />Form and Meaning should be given equal priority and mutual complementation.<br />Communicative approach but also strong grammar focus.<br />Or content and language integrated in a continuum.<br />“Content must be manipulated by pedagogy if its potential for language learning is to be realized” Klapper, 1996: 70<br />
  10. 10. Proposed Approach for CLIL: The Language Triptych.<br />Language of Learning: Content’s Concepts and Skills.<br />CLIL Linguistic Progression.<br />Language for Learning: Operating in a Foreign Environment.<br />Language through Learning:<br />Recycling Language Knowledge into New Environments<br />
  11. 11. Advantages of CLIL<br /><ul><li>Allows a much more “natural” and realistic way to approach language learning.
  12. 12. “Two birds with one stone” Learners achieve two areas of expertise under one subject.
  13. 13. Learners are prepared in a much more superior way into the globalized world. Learners acquires a much wider scope of analysis.</li></li></ul><li>CLILChallenges and restrictions:<br />Cultural<br /><ul><li>Breaking down myths: High proficiency can be achieved in Content and Language
  14. 14. Which and how many subjects should be taught?</li></li></ul><li>CLILChallenges and restrictions:<br />Social<br />Democratization of the system.<br />Social commitment towards CLIL.<br />Cultural identity and CLIL.<br />
  15. 15. CLILChallenges and restrictions:<br />-Cooperation and alliances<br />-Market response<br />Technical<br />Lack of teachers<br />Lack of materials<br />
  16. 16. CLIL Challenges and restrictions:<br />Pedagogical issues<br />Language is not the primary subject.<br />Avoiding content quality deficiency.<br />Create opportunities to develop language skills.<br />Appropriate level of language.<br />Variety of language models.<br />Communication over form.<br />Making it meaningful.<br />
  17. 17. Practical applications<br />Here are two examples of CLIL in use<br />CLIL in Finland<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAJSzSTUNT0<br />CLIL for the Knowledge Society<br />http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YwABHYvHwM<br />
  18. 18. Practical Applications:<br />Using Literature and Media under CLIL<br />Literature in a second language provides crucial language knowledge in:<br />-Subtle aspects of a language: Wordplay, Idioms.<br />-Register: Using a wide selection of works, from Classics to Postmodern<br />Also, “Pop Culture” works should be included, specially Comics and TV Series.<br />
