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?

  • You want to implement CLIL to your lessons, but don't know where to start
  •  You use the same CLIL activities over and over because you have no inspiration for new ones
  • You are implementing CLIL in some way, but are not sure if you are doing a good enough job 
  • You feel like you are reinventing the wheel because you have very few or no colleagues to spar with

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:

  • A step-by-step online training to help you get started as well as discover more advanced topics
  • 40+ ready-to-use CLIL activities you can use in your CLIL lesson with little or no preparation time
  • Monthly coaching sessions to discuss your challenges and receive feedback on your lesson
  • A community of CLIL teachers to learn, share information and find inspiration

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.

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!

That way you do no have to miss out on anything! You can enjoy the session whenever you want, wherever you want.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the CLIL Community for?

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.

Why should I join this community?

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.

What is the difference between the CLIL community and the CLIL club?

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.

Is a free trial available?

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.

What is the amount of time needed for the online course?

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.
