Defining CLIL. There was a lot of discussion about what exactly CLIL is, whether it is different from other approaches such as EMI (English as a Medium of Instruction) or CBI (Content-based Instruction) or CALLA (Cognitive Academic Language Learning Approach).

Defining CLIL

One colleague sees CLIL as a special form of TEFL, with the main emphasis being on the language. Another colleagues is equally sure that 'CLIL is of course content-based instruction, which is an area loaded with confusing and overlapping terminology (CLIL, SIOP, ESP, EAP, Sheltered, task-based, immersion, etc.)'. A useful distinction is drawn between 'cross-curricular' language teaching - teaching normal academic subjects in English to non native speakers - and other types of content based teaching where the content is given priority to the linguistic aims.

One colleague asks if the time has come to begin labelling parts of the CLIL continuum in order to define more precisely what goes on in the classroom. Article: What is CLIL?

That’s fine, it is a matter of simply linking the correct key stage to my target age range. If only it were that simple. Differences between UK and USA When I tried to figure out which books would be best for my students according to the key stages, I had to visit multiple websites in order to understand exactly what books I had to buy. Indeed, Wikipedia was actually wrong this time. One of my conclusions was that the age ranges of the different years in both the UK and the USA do NOT overlap.

It is an approach concerning languages or intercultural knowledge and understanding (Marsh, 2002); it is a meaning-focused learning method (Van de Craen, 2006) and an “umbrella” term used to talk about bilingual education situations (Gajo, 2007). According to TKT CLIL handbook (The TKT Course, CLIL module, Kay Bentley, CUP 2010) CLIL is an evolving educational approach to teaching and learning where subjects are taught through the medium of a non-native language.

To me, this last definition is the most descriptive one and the one the best approaches what most of us understand by CLIL. It is increasingly important in our global, technological society, where knowledge of another language helps learners to develop skills which will be able to communicate to people around the worlds.

Usar AICLE en la escuela significa usar una lengua distinta a la materna como medio de instrucción y aprendizaje de asignaturas como matemáticas, ciencias o historia.

Sin embargo, también es necesario enseñar la propia lengua, por lo que nos encontramos con dos tipos de profesores:El profesor de contenido, quien emplea la lengua meta para enseñar matemática. El profesor de lengua, quien se dedica a dar clase de esa lengua meta, digamos español. El profesor de lengua enseña español. Pero, en realidad, lengua y contenido están unidas.
