Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL): A European Overview
This study is designed to provide an insight into current developments in content and language integrated learning in Europe. Content and language integrated learning (CLIL) has become an umbrella term covering a wide variety of approaches to cross-curricular language/content teaching currently taking place in diverse educational contexts. European CLIL incentives are driven by socio-political factors based on the European Union's vision of a multilingual Europe and the consequent need for improvements in language teaching approaches and methods. National projects exist in most European countries, while a number of research organisations operate on a transnational level. While the theory behind CLIL is sound, development of teacher training programmes and content-based materials is required to make CLIL practicable on a larger scale.
