How to prepare your CLIL lessons..
..without having to spend hours on finding ideas, figuring it all out on your own and reinventing the wheel.
You are just seconds away from the step-by-step training, advice and support you need to prepare (even more) engaging CLIL lessons in less time and with lots of ideas to spare.
Does any of this sound familiar?
If it does, you know how hard it can be to find quality support and advice that fits your needs
That is what inspired me to build the CLIL Community!
I wanted to do something different AND help CLIL teachers worldwide to be able to get in touch, learn from each other and find inspiration in collaboration.
This is my way of helping you out with your CLIL lessons!
Some of the things included in the CLIL Community:
The CLIL Community will help you to
Find practical, ready-to-use CLIL activities for your next CLIL lesson
Save time by following a step-by-step plan instead of having to figure it all out
Receive support to help you implement CLIL for your specific situation

CLIL Quality Roadmap
A step-by-step online course
Get access to the CLIL Roadmap, a step-by-step online course to teaching CLIL.
With short videos and plenty of activities for your lessons, this course alone will take your lessons to the next level.
Each of the nine modules in this training is developed to guide you towards a better understanding of the concept as CLIL and its implementation at every level of CLIL understanding.
You can go through the modules at your own pace and ask for feedback during the coaching sessions.
Know what to do next
With this unique step-by-step process you do not have to think about what you can to do to improve your CLIL lessons.
At your own pace
Find the topics that interest you and suit your needs. Explore them at your own pace and ask for help when needed.
Practical hands-on ideas for your next CLIL lessons
Live training sessions
Every month you get a live training session on a topic related to CLIL teaching. Get updated on the latest books or research, find new inspiration and ideas and get in-depth knowledge on topics of your choice.
All you need to do? Show up and participate in the training!
Live CLIL Coaching
Do you have specific questions or challenges related to your class, subject or lesson? Or maybe you want some feedback on materials you designed? During the monthly CLIL Coaching sessions you get specific help with your challenges.
After these sessions you will be sure to walk away with something you can use in your next CLIL lesson!
Live CLIL Q&A
Running into challenges when working with the CLIL Quality Roadmap? Or maybe you simply have a question related to CLIL in general?
The Q&A sessions are organised to help you answer these types of questions and make sure you are no longer stuck!
You can probably not join all of the live sessions. But that is not a problem! You can find all of the recordings of past sessions available to you within a week of the live session.
That way you do no have to miss out on anything! You can enjoy the session whenever you want, wherever you want.
CLIL Community Network
A place to meet fellow CLIL teachers
In the community you can ask questions, share knowledge, celebrate successes and find inspiration. You can get feedback on tasks or answers to your questions from fellow CLIL teachers who are going through the same challenges and experiences.
The community is also a great place to find possible collaborations for preparing lessons or pairing up with accountability partners
Learn from the successes and experiences from fellow CLIL teachers
Meet teachers from all over the world and grow your network

Frequently Asked Questions
For CLIL teachers worldwide who teach in primary and secondary education. If you teach in other types of education your most welcome, but as that is not my personal expertise, I will have limited ideas to apply ideas to your lessons.
I think that can better be asked to the people who have already joined ;).
Some of the things I heard them say:
"You absolutely lived up to the expectations, and more so!"
"It is almost too good to be true"
"The idea of meeting CLIL colleagues who are in the same boat but in different countries and contexts is so inspiring"
"The CLIL Roadmap is gold"
Need I say more? But if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
The CLIL Club is a free Facebook group with posts, polls and questions. Teachers can ask each other questions, share ideas and find inspiration. I am not available live nor do any coaching in the CLIL Club.
The CLIL Community is a private, non-Facebook community with monthly live trainings, Q&A's and coaching. This is also a place to ask questions and receive support from me personally.
In other words: if you want to find some inspiration and ideas and want to do it yourself, the CLIL Club is a great place to start.
If you'd rather you receive support, coaching and a step-by-step training to help you implement CLIL to your lessons, the CLIL Community is the best option.
No, but I do offer a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. And as you can order 1 month only, you can test it during this first month and receive a refund if it does not live up to your expectations.
That is entirely up to you! Each module has over an hour of video material, but you can go through all of that at your own pace. And when you get stuck, you can join one of the monthly live sessions to ask questions and receive help.
