2. Read the material and do some research on the net and suggest how CLIL can be used at your center.
CLIL, here in this center, could be introduced slowly and with constant teachers' training dew of teachers'
graduation in this country, which is compound of almost one hundred per cent directed to a subject in L1,
in the formation of geography teacher, science teacher, etc. Therefore, thinking in L2 fluency and
experience perspective in this center, this term CLIL is more appropriate to be worked by a letters
teacher, who owns a more solid and experienced background. It could be also considered as a barrier
the student level in a classroom, which can vary in a drastic form, whereas a subject has a higher English
level, the other does not present a satisfactory vocabulary domain to embark in this acronym using L2.
Accordingly, here in this center, CLIL could be introduced by an area professional as a specialized
teacher in the L2, who is believed to own a higher level of fluency in the target language and a minimum
knowledge relating to others curricular subjects. This introduction could be the grammar teaching and
learning in a inductive manner and vocabulary in context by means of genres and texts related to the
curriculum subjects.

This method can be positive where I work at since it can enhance the learning of languages and other
subjects, and developing in the teenagers a positive can do attitude towards themselves as language
learners which is not very easy in these days. It is precisely this concept of a modern learning
environment based on constructivist principles (cf. Wolff 2002) which, in the view of CLIL methods, also
best does justice to the demands of integrated subject and foreign language teaching. The best way to
combine subject and language work is to integrate them in a learning environment of this kind.

Content Language Integrated Learning can be use and apply in all subjects that we can choose to work
and its very helpful tool in English class students and teachers are encourage to research which motivate
them as well as teachers offering a great opportunity to develop many tasks and activities getting
students engage, focus on and elicit students to interact among them and build learning by their own
construction.

As some partners said, I think CLIL has to be introduced slowly, because it is going to be a big mental
change, for teachers, parents and students. the rate at which students learn and manage the content will
change, the priority would not be the content, it wouldbe learning the language to understand the content.
If it is not introduced gradually and with the awareness of change, It can generate emotional problems
and disappointments. In cultures that are so closed to mental change in, Just like the one I work in, you
should think well and take a few steps and goals to follow a structured plan to work with.

Hi Dear tutor and classmates.


In an magazine article 'Education and Pedagogy', (vol. xx, num. 51) states: The English teacher can
organize the curriculum around themes that connect with the content of other subjects that students are
studying in their mother tongue or a topic of interest to students. Example, about natural sciences we
propose a topic by asking a question as, what are the nutritional benefits of fruits and vegetables in
humans?

I found an article which mentions that in a CLIL lesson, all four language skills should be
combined. Listening is a normal input activity, vital for language learning, Reading, using meaningful
material, is the major source of input, Speaking focuses on fluency. Accuracy is seen as

subordinate, Writing is a series of lexical activities through which grammar is recycled. It is necessary
the application of CLIL at the Institution where I work, my students work with machines (aircraft), and they
constantly use technical manuals; thus they have to follow instructions, and perform activities according
to what they read. If they receive the instructions (teaching) in the target language, they may feel more
familiarized with the material to be used during their working period, as a routine, as the most important
aspect is to understand what they have to do, instead of being translating every single word; in fact, they
sometimes make mistakes as they have some problems in grammar (use of language) or very simple but
highly important words, such as forbidden, once, a student of mine had carried out an activity, he
followed what the instructions said, and he was not sure about the meaning of the word forbidden, and
he committed a tremendous mistake. For that reason it is necessary to be in constant use of the
language, it means through instructions in the target language.

Hi, I think the following.


If CLIL could be introduced in my center it should be done gradually.This can start in schools first, where
the number of hours learning English is of vital importance, since our environment is not the FL (English).
If it is introduced as BICS, it will be easier to study different subjects using Academic Language in the
future and the Ss could be exposed to CALP in secondary section. However, in my country Ecuador, the
distribution of the workload of the subjects taught in the schools of basic education prescribes the study
of English for the past two years. Nevertheless, if the Government is concerned about promoting
education, supporting students and award scholarships expensive, it is clear that English is crucial. For
that reason, I think that instead of teaching all subjects in Spanish, they can be taught in English. For
example, in secondary section, science or history in 7th till 9 th grade, should be taught in English . In the
same way should be done in High-school with Economics, World History or Geography.

CLIL refers to teaching subjects such as science, history and geography to students through a foreign
language. This can be by the English teacher using cross curricular content or the subject teacher using
English as the language of instruction. Both methods result in the simultaneous learning of content and
English. (http://www.onestopclil.com/)
After researching about CLIL schools in Europe and Japan, I found out that my school has already
implemented CLIL. We are a school of the world were people from any background are welcomed , our
first language is Spanish, subjects are taught in a second language. I am a primary teacher ,and I see

howchildren learn curricular contents within a foreing language , as well as they aquire the language. It is
a grat opportunity that should be available for everybody.

I also think abouth , hundreds of public schools of my country where the subject of English is taught
twice or once a week only. Reading the study of CLIL application in Japan gives me a hope and
encourages me to push for this type of education. To apply CLIL in public schools of Nicaragua it would
be necesary to consider the following:
A change of mindset for teachers and students, teachers training ,a gradual but potential input of
English teaching, more hours devoted to the teaching of the subject. This must be a long term curricular
transformation for learners and teachers set good bases and handle the target language. We also need
to review our curriculum in order to offer a standar that applies for the globe. If i had to use CLIL in a
public school , i would start integrating subjeacts such as Science, History and Language. It is easy to
connect this interdisciplinary areas within a language.

Since English is the medium of instruction in the Philippines, it is inevitably the second language of the
vast majority of the people. Subjects are taught in English but I believe there is room for CLIL, i.e. subject
teachers should also be trained to focus on English and not just on the own subject objectives. I have to
say that it was during the Marcos dictatorship that the standard of education went down so much
because of the Continued Progression Scheme (CPS) which ordered all public school teachers to
promote all their pupils and students to the next level regardless of whether they had learnt anything or
not. That also resulted in the terrible drop in the standards of English.
I remember that when I was invited to teach English at an institution of higher learning (tertiary) I could
not believe what I was hearing. I was shocked to find out that the English spoken by the overwhelming
majority of the students was worse than that of my worst classmate in grade 3 in primary school. I told
the school head about the problem and he told me to have no qualms about giving them failing grades which I did. I believe that CLIL, with adequate teacher training, at least do some good for both teachers
and learners albeit on the CALP aspect. BICS will have to be taken care of in the English class.
