The study of foreign languages in our secondary school aims tointegrate all students and to give them the opportunityto communicate in a foreign language, especially English (but alsoFrench and German) considering the importance of tourism in thearea where we live. We also believe that all students should achieve some keycompetences in one or two Modern Foreign Languages that willallow them to communicate and feel they belong to a Europeanframework, in which everybody has to master almost one foreignlanguage. It is also part of our curriculum to highlight the bonds of our cultureand language with Latin and Greek and the culture of Ancient Romeand Ancient Greece.The English Department cooperates with other Departments fromour school and with other two secondary schools of Tarragona andReus in order to achieve the above mentioned objectives (forFrench) and with a British Secondary School in Banbury. The German Department cooperates since 1991 with a secondaryschool in Germany (Rosenstein Gymnasium in Heubach)

DEALING WITH ENGLISH IN OUR CURRICULUM (ESO)English is the foreign language that most students choose and itis studied in all the levels as a first foreign language and only inthe ESO stage as a second foreign language (for those whohave taken German). For all of them the main objective is tomaster the key competences and to be able to communicate inEnglish. Therefore, catering for diversity is essential since notall the students achieve the same objectives at the same timeand diversity is arranged this way. Special-needs students with an adapted curriculum. Low-level students in a small group. High-level students of CLIL. High-level students who take English as a second foreignlanguage. Advanced students who participate in the 6th Englishcompetition for Catalan schools The Fonix.

CLIL - Content and Language Integrated LearningSTUDENTSAimed at students aged 12-15 with an above-averagelevel of English.SUBJECTS INVOLVEDA- Natural Science ESO 1, Year 7 (aged 12-13)B- Technology ESO 1 and ESO 2 , Years 7-8C- Physics and Chemistry ESO 2, Year 8 (aged 13-14)D- Biology ESO 3, Year 9 (aged 14-15)OBJECTIVEMAKE THE STUDENTS AS FLUENT IN ENGLISH ASPOSSIBLE
How do we accomplish this?1-English is the only language used in the classroom.Students’ mother tongue is only used whencommunication fails.2-All teaching material provided is in English and mostof it authentic : science and English books, the Internet,e-magazines, e-newspapers, listenings, on-lineinterviews, songs, films, e-pen-pals, an English languageassistant, etc.3-Planning with the science teacher and working as ateam is pivotal to the successful outcome of the project.Thus, depending on the topics dealt with in the scienceclass the English teacher will carry out different activitiesin order to make the most of the learning process.CLIL
TYPES OF ACTIVITIESThese activities are carried out mainly in pairs andsmall groups.A. Preparatory activities:1- To go over the specific vocabulary (related to thecontent) the students will be using in the science class,laying stress on the pronunciation.2- To highlight any difficult or relevant, new structuresthey will need and provide them with grammarexplanations when required and practical exercises, sothat they are prepared to fully understand andcommunicate in English.3- To work together with the students so they can tackletheir science projects successfully.CLIL
B. Revision activities:Revise the contents, the vocabulary, and thepronunciation for a science test by doing quizzesand games, on the Internet, related to the topic theyhave gone through in the science class.C. Follow-up activities:Any of the following tasks linked to the topic:Webquests, interviews, debates, role-plays, oralpresentations, news reports and so on.CLIL
