Welcome to CLIL4teachers, the resources wiki for teachers interested in

Content and Language Integrated Learning


CLIL4teachers is part of the Association for Language Learning's FLAME initiative which aims to provide support for cross-curricular language learning and to raise awareness of its benefits. More information about FLAME and for CLIL is available at the FLAME PLUS website:  


This CLIL4teachers wiki enables teachers to share and find learning resources.  PLEASE upload any learning materials you have used to teach subjects and topics through target language, or you can email materials to and we will upload them for you. We welcome Powerpoints, documents, photos and audio files. If you have a large presentation or a film we recommend that you upload it to a website such as Slideshare and provide a link to it. You can find a guide to uploading materials here.




This is an exciting two day CLIL conference taking place next year. It welcomes researchers, trainee teachers and teacher educators interested in how cross curricular language learning can increase motivation, confidence and attainment. Topics will include the impact of CLIL and immersion techniques on pupils’ motivation and progress, what the UK can learn from other countries, and practical ideas for increasing cognitive challenge, motivation and engagement in primary and secondary classrooms. Information about booking and submissions for contributions will be available this autumn.


New page for methodology-related items

There is now a new page for ideas and information about CLIL and other cross-curricular approaches to language learning. The materials can include any articles or other documents about advice, examples of good practice, research findings, reports on classroom projects, new ideas or links to content in other websites. Please contribute to it!  The page for resources from CPD events will continue as well.


Our new English Language Page

We have had a lot of interest from teachers in countries other than the UK, so it seems like a good time to create a page for resources that are in English. If you have any, please upload them to the new page! There is information here about how to upload a file. 


Resources from the Primary Languages Conference, November 2013

The Powerpoint and links to online resources from the French CLIL workshop can be downloaded on the Resources from training events page.  The links include a very readable and practical guide to cross-curricular learning that can be downloaded from the University of Barcelona website.


Evaluation of the Spanish Bilingual Education Project

The independent evaluation report of the Bilingual Education Project  was published in English and Spanish by the Ministerio de Educación and the British Council (Spain) in 2010. It can be accessed at . The project involves children aged 3-16 in about 100 state schools in Spain. They spend about 40 per cent of curricular time studying subjects through the medium of English. There is also an online supplement (2011) which provides further data, information about methodology and some discussion of wider issues in bilingual education. It may be accessed at . With thanks to Alan Dobson and the National Association of Language Advisers ( for this information.   


CLIL: Content and Language Integrated Learning publication

This book by Do Coyle, Philip Hood and David Marsh, published in 2010, is highly recommended if you want to get to grips with the concepts and methodology of CLIL. There is also an excellent web page with information about the publication including an interview, podcast and vodcast featuring the authors.

Message from Do Coyle


Many of you will know Do Coyle, who has championed the cause of CLIL for many years. We are most grateful to Do for helping us to set up the CLIL Special Interest Group and for sending us this message:


I am delighted that ALL has taken the initiative to set up a SIG for CLIL. With the introduction of the new curriculum and a greater emphasis on creativity then cross- curricular initiatives are certainly being promoted and encouraged. To all of you who have been involved with CLIL or for those who are interested in any way, then it is timely that we must work together to give a collective voice to CLIL in the UK. There are many colleagues in our European and international networks who have been using a CLIL approach in subject teaching, in MFL and in cross-curricular projects with whom we can link and share ideas. CLIL will provide us with a creative and dynamic forum through which to explore making our teaching and learning environments more motivating and engaging not only for the students we teach but also for ourselves. So the time is right for us in the UK to make a significant contribution to the CLIL movement and to ensure that or colleagues throughout the land are aware of its potential. During the last year, I have been in contact with many teachers who are hoping to start to experiment with CLIL modules and those that are building on past experiences. We can now start to bring this altogether… so let’s get going…..

Encouragement for CLIL in the English curriculum...

In England there is now lots of encouragement for primary and secondary schools to explore how they can link language learning to other subjects of the curriculum.  There are references in the Languages Review (2007) and in the revised programme of study for languages in the new secondary curriculum.  

Do you have any resources to share?
