Erasmus Plus: Theory and Practise of CLIL for Teachers

This course is aimed at teachers from a range of non-linguistic mainstream subject backgrounds who want to skill themselves to engage their students via the target language of English.
Participants will improve their own command of English for the classroom and identify the principles of effective practice in CLIL.
The course focuses on the development of lesson facilities where the dual targets of content and language are being simultaneously pursued.

Participants will be required to do some pre-course reading and tasks in preparation for the course. Participants will also be required to do a pre-course reflection on their experience of teaching so far.

Course start dates: Every Monday from 20 January to 7 December 2020
(When Monday is a national holiday, the course starts on a Tuesday)

Min entry level: B2
Total Course fee for two weeks: €778
