The essence of CLIL• Creating connections between learners’ lives and the content being taught in school;• Learners will co-construct their understanding and learning.• “Learners learn to use the language and use the language to learn”• CLIL recreates the conditions to which young children are exposed when they learn their first language.
CLIL environment• It makes a child’s language-learning potential work by providing: Rich INPUT Opportunities for rich INTAKE and OUTPUTBUT: not all INPUT becomes INTAKECONSEQUENCE: limited opprotunities for output and learning will be HINDERED
What is and isn’t unique about CLIL? Although CLIL is a new approach , it fits into the parametres of national or regional curriculum; It is a new approach that seeks to enrich the learning enviroment; It requieres a co-operation and skills exchange among language and content teachers; It requieres a colective agreement on common teaching strategies and students learning activities; An essencial step in CLIL implementation: Interdiciplinary fusion

CLIL GOALSThe holistic development of learners;To guide students towards becoming capable and motivated;To form independent studentsTo put the focus on SUBSTANCENot only provide with new information but also permit the connection between that new information and the existing knowldge, skills and attitudes.
CLIL MODELMEANING-MAKING is both a personal and social process (COMUNITY)The new knowledge and skills develop through:Personal and cooperative reflection (COGNITION)A communicative process (COMMUNICATION)
THE FOUR PRINCIPLES• These principles can serve as a reference point for lessons planning• They contribute to successful outcomes COGNITIONCOMMUNITY – CONTENT - COMMUNICATION
How does CLIL work for students?CLIL classes work:To create life experiences;To tap into the innate language learning ability we all have. Communication and learning take place in the CLIL language
