Developing CLIL

Trainees on the University of Warwick’s modern foreign languages postgraduate certificate in Education (PGCE) programme received training in CLIL in order to plan and teach two CLIL lessons in their final placement school. In 2008 they chose to teach groups ranging from Year 7 to Year 13, while lesson content included Food Technology, history, geography, maths, PE, science and philosophy. Trainees’ lesson evaluations demonstrated the positive impact of CLIL lessons - they quoted learners’ excitement and desire to learn, and their realisation that languages could be useful. Trainees were also inspired by the possibility of teaching real subject content through a foreign language and report that it has changed the way they think about teaching a language.
