Description

This course aims at developing teachers’ fluency and accuracy in the English language. It also takes a multidisciplinary approach to understanding CLIL methodology and introduces participants to how the theory can relate to their own classroom practice. Includes CLIL lesson planning, resources, and the creation of materials.

The course addresses teachers of all subjects who would like to refresh and broaden their skills in the English language, implement CLIL methodology in their classes, understand its principles and applications, and find resources and lesson materials. 

By the end of the course, participants will feel more confident in speaking and writing in English. They will have also learned the key principle of CLIL lesson planning, material development and the integration of content and language teaching.
