The CLIL for Primary Teachers course is a very practical, hands-on course that gives Primary Teachers the opportunity to explore how language instruction can be integrated into their classroom practice. The course offers teachers ideas, techniques and resources for teaching curricular subjects through English. Teachers are supported in their own language development, with a dual focus on language for teaching and language for learning. Teachers explore language for interaction, language for instruction, cross-curricular academic language, and subject-specific vocabulary. 

The course will also benefit English language teachers who want to deepen their practice and explore the thinking and techniques behind cross-curricular English-medium Instruction.

Practical ideas for classroom management, teaching strategies, lesson planning, materials development and assessment will be applied to a variety of subjects across the curriculum with a focus on teaching Sports, Maths, Science and Art through English. Participants are encouraged to share their own ideas and experiences, and are given the opportunity to collaborate on tasks to create their own resources, putting the theory into practice.
