Title: Language Use and Language Learning in CLIL Classrooms
Edited By: Christiane Dalton-Puffer
Tarja Nikula
Ute Smit
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=AALS%207
Series Title: AILA Applied Linguistics Series 7
Description:

This volume explores a highly topical issue in second and foreign language
education: the spreading practice in mainstream education to teach content
subjects through a foreign language. CLIL has been enthusiastically
embraced as a language enrichment measure in many contexts and finally
research can offer principled insights into its dynamics and potentials.
The editors’ introductory and concluding chapters offer a synthesis of
current CLIL research as well as a critical discussion of unresolved issues
relating both to theoretical concerns and research practice. The individual
contributions by authors from a range of European contexts report on
current empirical research in this dynamic field. The focus of these
chapters ranges from theoretical to empirical, from learning outcomes to
classroom talk, examining both the written and spoken mode across secondary
and tertiary educational contexts. This volume is a valuable resource not
only for researchers and teachers but also for policy makers.
