Cross-curricular texts and activities Going for CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) is designed for young teenagers at elementary level (CEFR A1-A2). Going for CLIL can be used in the language classroom as a supplement to a coursebook of the same level, or at suitable moments in the academic subject classroom. Offering a selection of cross-curricular texts and activities, Going for CLIL is divided into three graded sections (A1, A1-A2, A2).
Each section presents a wide choice of texts taken from three academic subjects:
Topics have been selected according to the interests of students at this age, and to the syllabus of the academic subjects for the corresponding years. Students are therefore motivated by the possibility of using their English outside of the language classroom, in other disciplinary contexts. Consequently, they will not only gain knowledge of specific lexis, but they will also acquire confidence and key study-skills to approach future academic studies in English.
