  • 5. Why CLIL? Successful language learning can be achieved when people have the opportunity to experience real-life situations in which they can acquire the language. CLIL is a more natural situation for language development which builds on other forms of learning. This natural use of language can enhance a learner’s motivation towards learning languages. This naturalness is crucial for CLIL’s importance and success in relation to both language and other subject learning. Steve Darn 5

  • 7. Research Foundations It takes 5-7 years for students in a quality bilingual program to become academically proficient in English. Language acquisition is not a linear process; it is cyclical and recursive. Learners acquire best when they create, discover and construct their own meanings. Language is a means not an end, and when learners are interested in a topic, they will be motivated to acquire language to communicate. Semantic fluency precedes grammatical accuracy and errors are a natural part of language learning. Learners develop fluency in English by using English to communicate for a variety of purposes. Reading is essential for developing academic English skills.
