The teaching context of TAFE schools is English as a medium of instruction (EMI). However, a large cohort of students have language levels lower than the required ones. Research has shown that in EMI contexts, students’ language can only be improved if they get explicit language support or corrective feedback during the course ( Do & Nguyen, 2019, Nguyen et.al, 2018, 2019). The question is how to best address students’ needs of language and literacy improvements while teaching other contents and vice versa.
This presentation will provide a brief overview of the Content and Language integrated learning theory (CLIL), then provide examples of how to design a CLIL lesson in a TAFE course.
Ha has been teaching and doing research in language learning, TESOL and literacy for more than 20 years. Content and language learning and teaching is one of her main interests.
