WA CLIL Conference 2017

If children aren’t naturally switched on by the idea of learning vocab and grammar when they start out, they often won’t make it to higher levels of second language learning.

If you teach students who are unfamiliar to a language, or you lead those who do, this conference will help you enrich language learning experiences. Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) encourages teachers and learners to rethink what it means to be someone using language. Even if students are not passionate about syntax and lexis, they can be excited by nature, sport, music or something they’ve never done before – it just happens to be in another language.

Through these sessions you will gain:

  • a better understanding of the theoretical background of CLIL
  • experience to develop approaches to CLIL for your personal teaching context
  • network opportunities with your peers and knowledge experts in this area.

You will receive a certificate of professional learning. Catering is provided on both days, and a sundowner will be arranged for the Friday evening.

The conference will be delivered over two days

Friday 10 November (speakers): Hear from our line-up of expert local, interstate and international speakers looking at CLIL in a range of contexts.

Saturday 11 November (workshops): Russell Cross and MLTAWA staff will run a day of practical workshops.
