Description of CLIL Training Sessions

Macarena Navarro Pablo University of Seville.

Communicative approach develops into CLIL. Why a CLIL approach? Why should we introduce changes in the way we are teaching our students? What are the most important changes CLIL might introduce in Initial and In-Service Training for Primary Teachers? How much influence may have the communicative approach while trying to introduce a CLIL one? We will try to compare the training our student received so far being immersed in what is being called a communicative approach to foreign language learning with the kind of training we want to introduce with a CLIL approach.

Which features of the training did you find most useful? Use of a variety of resources such as recorded classes, websites, etc The idea of integrating topics of the subjects into language lessons. Which features could have been improved and how? More time to learn how to plan CLIL lessons and how to select and prepare materials for a CLIL course. More information about CLIL and examples of successfully experiences

Which other issues related to CLIL teaching would you like to address in future training? Grouping strategies Alternatives ways for providing input Techniques for making subject matter comprehensible Using group work and team-building techniques Use CLIL in ICT

Please add below any further comments that you think might be helpful.
I think that more emphasis should be paid to the design of CLIL courses: selection of objectives, types of learning and teaching activities, learner and teacher roles, and the role of materials Teacher training is very important for work well this type of class. This training should be at the university, with more real and practical subjects. There are many subjects that have nonsense in our studies, and dont have a lot of practical and real subjects For a better integration of CLIL teaching is necessary the incorporation of new technologies such as interactive whiteboards, loudspeaker in computers, etc. The use of interactive whiteboards would be a challenge in CLIL teaching. Interactive whiteboards offers lots of attractive and varied resources for pupils.

The idea of CLIC is great so, dont give upits important to promote CLIL showing the advantages with regard to the traditional teaching
