Title: Content and Language Integrated Learning
Subtitle: Evidence from Research in Europe
Edited By: Yolanda Ruiz de Zarobe
Rosa María Jiménez Catalán
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847691651
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

This book contributes to the growth of interest in Content and Language
Integrated Learning (CLIL), an approach to second/foreign language learning
that requires the use of the target language to learn content. Within the
framework of European strategies to promote multilingualism, CLIL has begun
to be used extensively in a variety of language learning contexts, and at
different educational systems and language programmes. This book brings
together critical analyses on theoretical and implementation issues of
Content and Language Integrated Learning, and empirical studies on the
effectiveness of this type of instruction on learners’ language competence.
The basic theoretical assumption behind this book is that through
successful use of the language to learn content, learners will develop
their language proficiency more effectively while they learn the academic
content specified in the curricula.
