Clil in luxembourg 1

  1. 1. CLIL in LuxembourgIn Luxembourg, the practice of CLIL has a long history, it was introduced in 1844. It starts early (atage eight, first in German then also in French) and is the rule, not the exception. CLIL is offered to allstudents and used in all science and social science subjects. With the exception of the InternationalSchool and the European School however, English is only taught as a language. A couple of years ago,the Ministry of Education proposed to teach science courses in English, but most of the teacherswere very reluctant to do so, since their English usually isn’t as good as their German or French. Atthe moment, the national curriculum proposes the use of documents in English in some classes, butthese texts are commented on in French or German. One may hope that through projects like these,some of our teachers will become a little more self-confident and dare use their English even if it isnot on the same very high level as their German or French.
