DEVELOPING WRITING COMPETENCE IN CLIL AND EFL CONTEXTS

Inna Livytska, Ukraine, ID CLIL2016-708;       Research on writing development in content and language integrated learning settings is still inconclusive. In fact, an overview study on CLIL learning outcomes classifies writing as one of the areas of linguistic competence likely to remain unaffected by CLIL instruction. At the same time, some of the studies show considerable benefits of CLIL on writing competence. Thus, the study focuses on the research conducted in order to investigate the development of students’ writing competence in CLIL and non-CLIL (English as a foreign language) contexts scrutinizing the aspects of coherence, cohesion, academic register, accuracy and fluency. 

Key words: linguistic competence development, academic writing, CLIL classes, English as a foreign language,
