It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

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.
