There are different approaches to language learning which can be used in the classroom. A number of these approaches integrate the target language and content or subject teaching. These pedagogies can increase students’ participation and confidence as well as develop language skills.
Task-based learning (TBL)
Task-based learning involves the teaching and learning of languages through tasks in the target language which aims to use authentic language and language usage scenarios. This can increase students’ participation and confidence.
Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)
Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is a pedagogical approach which integrates the curriculum content with the teaching of additional languages.
Allowing plurilingual learners to use their full linguistic repertoire in the classroom to communicate can support students in making connections between languages and can support deeper learning.
