The Fusion Effect of CLIL in Language-building and Content-learning

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


To talk about CLIL is not only talk about connecting languages across the curriculum, but also about facing mixed-ability groups, dealing with interculturality, providing new answers to teacher training needs, working upon key competencies, integrating 2.0 and 3.0 ICTs, elaborating materials, analysing results, and so on and so forth.

Analyses on teachers’ views merged into students’ real results are necessary in order to provide a general picture of how CLIL implementation is taking place at the moment. In this paper we will analyse the results elicited from the first part of a multi-level two-year research study undertaken in Galicia (Spain) aiming at eliciting and analysing: teachers’ opinions on CLIL implementation, students’ performance and attitudes, support from the government and training needs;
and students’ results in 85 primary schools regarding: local languages, additional languages and non-linguistic subjects.
