Title: Discourse in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) Classrooms
Written By: Christiane Dalton-Puffer
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LL%26amp%3BLT%2020
Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 20
Description:

The label CLIL stands for classrooms where a foreign language (English) is
used as a medium of instruction in content subjects. This book provides a
first in-depth analysis of the kind of communicative abilities which are
embodied in such CLIL classrooms. It examines teacher and student talk at
secondary school level from different discourse-analytic angles, taking
into account the interpersonal pragmatics of classroom discourse and how
school subjects are talked into being during lessons. The analysis shows
how CLIL classroom interaction is strongly shaped by its institutional
context, which in turn conditions the ways in which students experience,
use and learn the target language. The research presented here suggests
that CLIL programmes require more explicit language learning goals in order
to fully exploit their potential for furthering the learners’ appropriation
of a foreign language as a medium of learning.
