Abstract Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) can be used as an umbrella term to refer to a variety of bilingual education programmes (e.g. immersion, content-based instruction, English as the medium of instruction). These programmes share a common underlying principle – to integrate content and language learning, though to varying degrees. However, how teachers can integrate the two dimensions in their actual practices remains unresolved. One particular issue is how teachers, especially those content subject specialists, can help English-as-a-foreign-language (EFL) learners to develop their academic literacies and content knowledge at the same time. In this webinar, the speaker will share her experience of working with CLIL teachers in Hong Kong secondary schools, which are adopting English as the medium of instruction for some or all content subjects. She will introduce two approaches – promoting cross-curricular collaboration between English and content subject teachers and incorporating genre-based approaches in content subject lessons. For the first approach, content subject teachers and English teachers collaborate with each other to develop a school-based content and language integrated curriculum to promote CLIL. For the second approach, in-service training is provided for content subject teachers in CLIL to raise their language awareness and equip them with strategies (e.g. genre-based approaches) to integrate language scaffolding into their content subject lessons. With empirical data from some recent research projects, the speaker will discuss the strengths and limitations of these different approaches, which in turn provide some implications for pedagogy and teacher education in CLIL.
