Making Teaching CLIL Fun and Easy with Big English!
- Learn how to integrate formative and informative CLIL lessons into real abilities, so students can face 21st Century Skills challenges.
- Review how to teach CLIL lessons focusing on academic vocabulary, reading texts, answering comprehension questions, and how to follow up with discussions.
- Practice how to link CLIL lessons to reading and learning skills and strategies, to speaking in meaningful, communicative situations, and to extend the use of content onto process writing.
Before CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) became a pillar of an updated ELT process, teaching was more difficult and less successful because we had to hang on to one-dimensional skills such a grammar, vocabulary and conversation practice to build enough exposure and mastery. Simply put there weren’t enough essential elements in the process to keep students engaged and acquiring ways of communicating with authentic, useful language. Then we incorporated both academic and cultural CLIL, and the issue became how to integrate those formative and informative lessons into real abilities, so students could face 21st Century Skills challenges and their requirement to use English in meaningful, fun ways. This session is about how to achieve that!
