Book Information


Title: The Roles of Language in CLIL
Written By: Ana Llinares
Tom Morton
Rachel Whittaker
Series Title: Cambridge Language Teaching Library

"The Roles of Language in CLIL" provides a theoretically based approach to the
integration of language and content in primary and secondary contexts
addressed to a range of stakeholders in Content and Language Integrated
Learning. Adopting the framework of systemic functional linguistics, this book
raises practitioners’ awareness of how language functions in CLIL.

Drawing on their wide experience as CLIL educators and researchers, the
authors explore data collected in real CLIL classrooms from two interrelated
perspectives: the CLIL classroom as an interactional context for developing
language and content, and the genres and registers through which the meanings
of the different academic subjects are enacted. From the analysis of this corpus
of data, the authors provide a rich description of how CLIL students’ language
works and may be expected to develop.
