Aproaching other subjects. CLIL

“This approach involves learning subjects or contents such as history, geography or others, through an additional language. It can be very successful in enhancing the learning of languages and other subjects, and developing in the youngsters a positive ‘can do’ attitude towards themselves as language learners”. (David Marsh)

In this section we will be able to find resources to enhance or support our practice as teachers teaching a subject or part of it, a content, etc. in English. They are very useful since children can watch small films, pictures, etc. that help to understant contents in a meaningful way, mainly visually as well as orally or written activities.IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO BE AWARE OF:Most of the links offered are not specially designed for CLIL lessons in English! They are original versions used for english-speaking natives. That means very often teachers need to readapt the materials to be more useful in the lessons.Other times just using them as they are, it is good fun for our students.
