Content and Language Integrated Learning is indisputably changing educational parameters in Europe, as well as in Spain’s north-western region, Galicia, originally bilingual (Spanish/Galician), which is situated in a Spanish-Portuguese intercultural enclave. In this chapter we deal with the linguistic status of present-day Galician, as well as all actions fostering additional language learning related to our successful CLIL implementation experience. The following factors have contributed to making CLIL the primary means for revitalising the learning of additional languages: the promotion of immersion programmes for
students in primary and secondary education; the creation of a gradually increasing network of primary and secondary schools, as well as teacher-training programmes that include in-service training; and materials design.
