Discover Interview: The Radical Linguist Noam Chomsky For centuries experts held that every language is unique. Then one day in 1956, a young linguistics professor gave a legendary presentation at the Symposium on Information Theory at MIT. He argued that every intelligible sentence conforms not only to the rules of its particular language but to a universal grammar that encompasses all languages. And rather than absorbing language from the environment and learning to communicate by imitation, children are born with the innate capacity to master language, a power imbued in our species by evolution itself. Almost overnight, linguists’ thinking began to shift.

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. If they re-organise or change input into another form, learners will process and comprehend input better. 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. Such tasks require higher thinking skills. Secondly, if learners are helped to ‘scaffold’ their learning to understand the main points of lesson input, they will be understood better. ?ADDENDUM by Mª Teresa Navés and Carmen Muñoz University of Barcelona, Spain Introduction1.

Berritzegune Nagusia A Content-Based approach to teaching and learning second languages has been adopted both for INEBI and BHINEBI. The content-based teaching-learning approach provides a very adequate frame to organise various aspects of this proposal. It helps make the acquisition of language parallel to that of natural language acquisition and of concept development. This approach promotes the teaching of languages through the teaching of contents and it is based on a communicative methodology, far away from the traditional and grammatical language teaching methods that propose unreal and often irrelevant activities. CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) has been applied into any teaching-learning contexts where the instruction language is not the learner’s L1. Besides, the new language teaching and learning methodologies plead for learn by doing and learn as you use and use as you learn.

And why is that all over the world students like yourselves are spending so much time and money doing the same thing?

CLIL: A lesson framework Underlying principles Classroom principles Lesson framework Conclusion Underlying principles The principles behind Content and Language Integrated Learning include global statements such as 'all teachers are teachers of language' (The Bullock Report - A Language for Life, 1975) to the wide-ranging advantages of cross-curricular bilingual teaching in statements from the Content and Language Integrated Project (CLIP). The benefits of CLIL may be seen in terms of cultural awareness, internationalisation, language competence, preparation for both study and working life, and increased motivation.
