English Language Development For Teachers Plus CLIL Methodology For Primary Schools – EAS-CLI2
Easy School of Languages

This course is aimed at non-native language teachers or teachers of other subjects, working in primary schools, who have just started using CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) or intend to implement this approach in their classroom. CLIL is used in schools to teach subjects such as general science, art and maths, using a foreign language. Whether it is the language teacher teaching another subject in a foreign language or the subject teacher using a foreign language to teach content, the outcome will be the integrated learning of both content and language. This course will help primary school teachers build their confidence to use English in their classroom as well as provide them with the basic principles of CLIL methodology and practical ideas that can be applied to their CLIL lessons.

Teachers will normally have a level of spoken English equivalent to A2 or higher (Pre-Intermediate or higher). Applicant must be a primary school teacher.

Each applicant will be asked to complete a questionnaire before the course starts. This will enable us to assess to the participants’ needs. Each applicant is required to bring to class some materials related to the subject they would like to teach in English e.g. texts on a specific topic, related pictures and online materials, etc. Preferably the texts should be already in English. This material will be used to create CLIL materials.

Participants will:
- upgrade their English
- have the opportunity to practise English and gain confidence
- interact in English through a number of activities
- gain confidence in teaching through English
- become more familiar with CLIL
