    • Musical expertise? Teacher support?
  • 30. What language learning opportunities do these CLIL lessons provide?
    • Four main sources
    • 1. general classroom management and instructions
    • 2. the language used to introduce the topic, to set up the music activity itself,
    • to attain the music aims & lead to a musical performance
  • 31. What language learning opportunities do these CLIL lessons provide?
    • 3. the words and phonological features of the songs, rhymes, chants, stories, and mini-dialogues,
    • 4. further development of specific language features and topic themes
  • 32. And finally… the three most important things…
    • use the musical activity to generate opportunities to interact with the children in English
    • encourage children’s language and music development by being positive
    • make sure you all enjoy making music.
