In this article John Clegg outlines the language and learning skills which a learner learning a subject through the medium of English as a second language (L2) requires. 1. Introduction What I want to do in this article is outline the language and learning skills which a learner learning a subject through the medium of English as a second language (L2) will need. This learner is typically learning the whole of the subject in English for some years or throughout schooling. 2. Learners working in a L2 need three kinds of language and learning skills: basic L2 skills, academic L2 skills and metacognitive skills for learning a subject in L2. 2.1 Basic language skills Learners learning in a L2 obviously need to possess basic language skills. 2.2 Academic language skills But learners of subjects in L2 have to do things with the language which conventional foreign language learners don't have to do.

Explaining BICS and CALP Basic Interpersonal Communication Skills Experts such as Jim Cummins differentiate between social and academic language acquisition. Basic Interpersonal Communication Skills (BICS) are language skills needed in social situations. It is the day-to-day language needed to interact socially with other people. English language learners (ELLs) employ BIC skills when they are on the playground, in the lunch room,on the school bus, at parties, playing sports and talking on the telephone. Social interactions are usually context embedded.

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. While CLIL may be the best-fit methodology for language teaching and learning in a multilingual Europe, the literature suggests that there remains a dearth of CLIL-type materials, and a lack of teacher training programmes to prepare both language and subject teachers for CLIL teaching.

CLIL and CALL for a teacher’s expertise: an international training experience Abstract The paper deals with the link between Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL), that is the use of ICT to enhance language teaching-learning and the teaching of subject content in a foreign language. Starting from this background, the paper describes an online training initiative promoted by the authors within an international community of peers, made up of teachers, trainers and educators from all over the world, named “Techno-CLIL for EVO 2016”. The initiative was aimed at supporting and guiding participants to discover and experiment digital tools for CLIL lessons, offering the opportunity to share ideas, materials, good practices in an international perspective.

David Graddol, the author of English Next, has said of CLIL: ‘there is a potentially large downside to it. In many countries they just don’t seem to be equipped to implement CLIL. When it works, it works extraordinarily well, but it is actually quite difficult to do well.

What is Web 2.0 Web 2.0 is the current state of online technology as it compares to the early days of the Web, characterized by greater user interactivity and collaboration, more pervasive network connectivity and enhanced communication channels. One of the most significant differences between Web 2.0 and the traditional World Wide Web (WWW, retroactively referred to as Web 1.0) is greater collaboration among Internet users, content providers and enterprises. Originally, data was posted on Web sites, and users simply viewed or downloaded the content. Increasingly, users have more input into the nature and scope of Web content and in some cases exert real-time control over it. The social nature of Web 2.0 is another major difference between it and the original, static Web.

The 4 C’s model – Do Coyle The lighter version CLIL is complex and context-sensitive.There are general parameters for CLIL.These are: Cognition, Culture, Content, Communication.Any particular CLIL model or methodology needs to consider the relative value/importance of the parameters above.Language as a learning tool operates in three ways: OF – FOR – THROUGH The 4Cs Framework Coyle, D. (2008). CLIL – a pedagogical approach. INTEGRATING MOBILE DEVICES INTO LANGUAGE LEARNING TO MEET THE 21ST CENTURY EDUCATIONAL CHALLENGES Home » novembre Abstract This paper focuses on the value added by digital and mobile learning to the development of language competences and to the teaching/learning of subject content in a foreign language through CLIL methodology (Content and Language Integrated Learning). The European Commission recommends CLIL as one of the most innovative strategies for the modernization of our education and training system. It has been successfully experimented in most European countries (Eurydice, 2012). This paper makes reference to a report recently published by the European Commission (2014a), that focuses on the link between CLIL, CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning) and MALL (Mobile Assisted Language Learning). As an example of good practice, a European project called Creative Classroom Labs, on behalf of European Schoolnet ( is noted and described.

WHAT IS CLIL? - CLIL principles CLIL stands for Content and Language Integrated Learning. 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.
