Putting CLIL into Practice: the 3 dimensions of content’ (Plenary)

Phil Ball;       CLIL stands for ‘Content & Language Integration’ but what do we mean by ‘content’?  CLIL teachers of both younger and older learners find it useful to distinguish between factual content (concepts), more cognitive content (skills) and the specific language content (linguistic) their students need in more content-based approaches. This session will outline the notion of the ‘3 dimensions of content’, identify this content in the books proposed, and involve the teachers in some practical activities around this theme.
