Primary CLIL Around Europe


Throughout Europe there is a growing awareness that language learning is much more effective when linked to meaningful content. Through exploiting the synergies of Content AND Language Integrated Learning, children gain a second or third language and subject knowledge simultaneously with ease. This publication brings together various perspectives from different corners of Europe and from different levels: Classroom practice, teacher education, academic research and European language policy. Through CLIL not only the target language improves substantially, it also has a very positive influence on attitudes and motivation and on the cognitive development of children plus a positive influence on subject matter knowledge and on the development of the pupils’ first language. Furthermore, it is a particular advantage for children from a migration background and it is especially effective in primary school – from day one. For the benefit of every child and to bring the vision of three or more languages (1+<2) within compulsory education to life, it is time to rethink primary teacher education.

«Die Veröffentlichung hat […] einen hohen Stellenwert, da sie aufzeigt, wie wichtig es ist, die Wurzeln des bilingualen Sach-Fachunterrichts bereits in der Grundschule zu legen, um einen effektiven CLIL-Unterricht in den Sekundarstufen zu ermöglichen.«
