CONTENT AND LANGUAGE INTEGRATED LEARNING TEACHING TEENAGERS AND ADULTS (CLIL) 

Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) has become the umbrella term describing both learning another (content) subject such as physics or geography through the medium of a foreign language and learning a foreign language by studying a content-based subject. CLIL, as a term, can be traced back to 1994 and Professor David Marsh of the University of Jyväskylä in Finland. But while the term “CLIL” can be a relatively recent European innovation, the concept of CLIL has been used long before 1994. Just as “integrated” suggests, a CLIL class hits two birds with one stone: the subject matter and the target language.

The training supported by Enso Education is for teachers of all levels. Teachers are expected to record notes, photographs and learning to use upon return to their countries of origin.
