Accommodation Details:

This course is designed for non-native teachers of subjects (biology, geography, physics,  history, etc.). It aims to introduce and explain the CLIL approach to teaching academic subjects in L2, while also helping participants to refresh their own English language skills. The course will comprehensively examine all aspects of CLIL, while giving participants the opportunity to practice the methodology. Participants will understand that the needs of learners in L2 lessons are vastly different to those in L1 lessons, and will develop and practice teaching techniques that can support and motivate subject students in new ways.
