IH have two CLIL courses starting soon!

International House have announced that they have two CLIL courses starting - one in February and one in July/August. 

This 4-week introduction to CLIL course will develop your skills in how to teach CLIL effectively in whatever teaching and learning environment you are working in. This short teacher development course gives practical ideas to use in the classroom and the theoretical background behind them.

Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) takes place when a subject (such as maths, science, geography) is taught in English, to learners with a different first language. There are two main focus points for each lesson; the subject content and an element of the English Language. It is closely related to EMI (English as the Medium of Instruction) which focuses solely on teaching the subject matter, and this course is beneficial to practitioners of both methodologies.

CLIL is commonly used in many state schools and international settings, where children need to improve their English as well as learn compulsory curriculum subjects. Using English to teach another subject/topic is also a stalwart of every English teacher's repertoire, be it a grammar point or some vocabulary, hooking your lesson topic onto another subject is a standard technique for many of us.

This course gives a solid base of knowledge about this type of teaching either for newly qualified teachers or those with more experience and includes teaching strategies for planning and teaching successful CLIL lessons.
