A 12 hour professional development course for already practicing language and academic subject teachers in collaboration with Teaching English in Italy


Join us for a fantastic, fun and engaging weekend centered around everything CLIL.  If you don’t know anything about CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning), or are unfamiliar with this term, you’ll end up with a good foundation and lots of new teaching ideas to motivate your learners after this course. 

For two days, we will focus on the city of Florence (Renaissance and Contemporary) and develop your knowledge for planning, preparing, and implementing reading, writing, listening, and speaking activities for non-native speakers of a language. This course will also provide you with lots of ideas for using Authentic Materials from the “real world” of native speakers of a language in your own classroom. 

An excellent course for both academic subject and language teachers who need to teach content (academic or otherwise) in English (or in another language).  By the end of the course, you’ll walk away with a treasure trove of CLIL resources and creative material ideas that you can develop for your second and foreign language learners (young or adult). You’ll become a better teacher and learn how to integrate motivating (and stimulating) content into your teaching. You’ll also learn something more about the history, people and places from Florence’s past and present. What could be better?

Please note: the last hour of each day will be spent outside of the classroom visiting places related to course content.
