CLIL videos Why should CLIL teachers support learners to work actively with the input provided? Firstly, if learners are actively involved in thinking about the content and/or the language, they will reach a better understanding of both.

Tasks for guiding understanding might include, for example, changing information from a diagram into a text, or from a text into a picture or role-play.
