Comments about MA Content and Language Integrated Learning - At the institution - Nottingham - Nottinghamshire

  • Objectives
    Content and Language Integrated Learning is now found at all educational levels throughout the world. Teachers and students find that by integrating a content subject such as mathematics or science or geography through a foreign language, their engagement with both subjects is raised and the learning of both subjects thrives. This unique course has been developed to enhance the ability of all those engaged in CLIL to create theoretically underpinned purposeful and enjoyable learning experiences for their students. We hope that by offering a mixture of taught intensive modules and at distance study, we can give each participant the maximum flexibility to get the most out of the course.
