CLIL – Content and Language Integrated Learning -- has a huge impact on teaching/learning, with great advantages both for the foreign language and for the subjects which are taught in that language.
The teaching of a subject through a foreign language is becoming an integrated part of the secondary school curriculum in many countries. In order to implement this new approach, the role of teacher training is essential.
This EVO session aimed at spreading CLIL methodology, combining teaching strategies and technical tools and eliciting reflections and discussions among teachers from all over the world. It is important to share good practices from the different countries and learn from other colleagues through synchronous and asynchronous web meetings.
