CLIL ve výuce

CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning, tj. obsahově a jazykově integrované učení) patří k významným kurikulárním trendům současného evropského školství, a je jednou z možných strategií dvojjazyčného vzdělávání.

Mezi nesporné výhody CLIL patří přirozené prostředí pro výuku a rozvoj cizího jazyka. Žáci použijí cizí jazyk v naprosto přirozeném prostředí, a ne v uměle vykonstruovaných situacích tak, jak se děje v hodinách cizího jazyka. Jsou lépe motivováni a jsou zároveň účastni bezprostředního použití jazyka. Hodina jednoho nejazykového předmětu umožní tak nenásilné osvojování si cizího jazyka.

There is a large focus on in-class discussion and questions. Psychology has research and writing that explains theories but is open to interpretation. Student insight and ideas are very important for this class. The more a student participates, the more we will learn and progress!
