CLIL in languages other than English –
Successful transitions across educational stages

The project will develop recommendations for implementing CLIL in languages other than English across educational stages (primary, secondary, tertiary), both in the language classroom and in other subjects. The recommendations will be illustrated by practice examples from various contexts. The project sees CLIL as part of intercultural education and as a vehicle for promoting pluralistic approaches to language learning (CLsIL).

A pluriliteracies approach to teaching for learning

Pluriliteracies Teaching for Learning (PTL) shows teachers and materials developers ways of fostering deep learning by paying attention to the development of students‘ subject specific literacies as well as their conceptual understanding and automatization of subject-specific procedures, skills and strategies. By communicating about their evolving understanding in increasingly sophisticated ways, students internalize these understandings and ways of acting and thinking. PTL not only makes the links between content and language learning visible, but it also shows how teachers can create learning trajectories taking students’ current abilities as a starting point, and tracing their progress along the learning pathway.

Content and language integrated learning through languages other than English - Getting started

However, practical examples on organisation, implementation and development of CLIL are, still mostly confined to the context of the English medium CLIL. Aiming at diversification and as a contribution to European education for multilingualism, an information brochure and a rich online portal present examples of good practice in the area of CLIL with a special focus on German as a ‘CLIL-language’.
