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(at age eight, first in German then also in French) and is the rule, not the exception. CLIL is offeredto all students and used in all science and social science subjects. With the exception of theInternational School and the European School however, English is only taught as a language. A coupleof years ago, the Ministry of Education proposed to teach science courses in English, but most of theteachers were very reluctant to do so, since their English usually isn’t as good as their Germanor French. At the moment, the national curriculum proposes the use of documents in English in someclasses, but these texts are commented on in French or German. One may hope that through projectslike these, some of our teachers will become a little more self-confident and dare use their Englisheven if it is not on the same very high level as their German or French.
