Abstract

Many children are now relatively proficient in general English by the time they reach secondary school and need something more than simple revision of what they have already learnt. Teaching other subjects through English provides a better preparation for professional life than teaching English as a subject empty of content. There are many motivational advantages in teaching English for a well-defined purpose which is considered to be relevant by the students. Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) has attracted great attention in recent years, especially in Europe. In this paper we are going to show what the advantages of CLIL are and how efficient and useful teaching other subjects through English can be. We are also going to present some of the ways in which we can correlate other subjects and English.
