- Expand your repertoire of activity ideas and techniques for teaching subject content to primary learners
- Develop strategies for fostering age-appropriate critical thinking by students about content and language
- Enhance your ability to plan, teach and assess learning in CLIL lessons

Who is this course for?
This course is ideal for primary school teachers who teach curricular subjects – like science, maths, or history – wholly or partly in English to children who don’t use English as their first language. Alternatively, it is useful for CLIL teachers who want to improve their use of English in a primary classroom context. Participants must have an Intermediate (B1) language level, at a minimum.
Each course we run is tailored by our expert tutors to the professional needs and priorities of the participants so content may be adapted to best suit the needs of your group.
