Welcome to the CLIL Project

This is just like an email so easy to type stuff and to post it, so I want to hear a lot of information from all you CLILists. The aim is to keep the sight tight but friendly at the same time and to make sure that it is useful to you. The best way for this to happen is if there is lots of interaction on the site and that you are all contributing stuff for yourselves.

Here is the first hint have a look at the clues that were given in the planning grid - here they are:

What approaches and methodologies will I use?
Using the environment
Involving families
Class organisation
Free exploration of language materials
Use of ICT
Active learning
Teacher-directed learning
Collaborative learning

If you want to check out some interesting ideas on collaborative learning for CLIL classes then go to and have a look at the English as an additional language draft guidelines.

Good luck with the project I am sure that all of you are going to have lots of interesting experiences. Enjoy
