Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)
CLIL is a dual-focused educational approach in which an additional language is used for the learning and teaching of both language and content.
A CLIL approach provides for the delivery of aspects of the curriculum through a language that is not the medium of instruction in the school.
