Learn what you want about CLIL, without missing any lessons
Want to learn about CLIL at your own pace, at your own level, when you want to do it?
Hi, I'm Patrick. I am a CLIL Mathematics teacher and CLIL coach. As Chief Editor of CLIL Magazine and creator of the CLIL Challenge, I have helped out hundreds of CLIL teachers worldwide.
Online training about CLIL:
all about how you want to learn
When I started out with CLIL, little to no training was available. And even if there was, I had to cancel lessons. In other words: preparing them for other teachers, which cost time. A lot of time.
That was more than ten years ago. You would think things have changed.
They have not.
With CLIL Courses online, you can review everything that is important about CLIL at your own pace. You can select which topic you want to learn about, watch some videos in your own time and test your knowledge with a quiz.
In other words: you do not have to skip lessons but can study at your own pace. At school, at home or even when you are travelling in the train.
"CLIL is an umbrella term"
Indeed, CLIL is actually about a lot of different things. It involves language learning, learning skills, activating students, implementing ICT etc.
Overwhelming, isn't it?
What I think CLIL should be about
Okay, we all know CLIL stands for Content and Language Integrated Learning, right?
But what does that actually mean?
- Do you know what it means for your lesson or lesson preparation?
- Do you know what it means for the way you interact with your students?
- Do you know what it means for the students in your lesson?
These questions, and many more, were questions I struggled with when I started out with CLIL a decade ago. With only a few books and little to none available training, I had to figure out a lot myself.
Fortunately, I was allowed to follow a course on CLIL, over the course of four days. In other words: four days of lessons had to be skipped to learn this.
With the help of amazing trainers during this course, I developed more CLIL activities and became a CLIL coach. Most of my questions were answered, but one question remained:
Was this the best way to study CLIL?
CLIL is not about being a perfect language teacher or about playing games all the time - these kind of misconceptions seem to persists. A lot.
I think CLIL can be studied a lot easier than live training. With the help of colleagues, videos and feedback.
What are the elements of CLIL?
In my opinion, CLIL consists of two elements:
Generating Language output
Activate participation of students
But a lot of questions remain:
As I said: many questions.
If you have to answer them all, you would not be able teach a single lesson anymore.
While I was coaching other teachers on CLIL, I learned what strategies work better than others. Also, because I still teach, I try new activities in my lessons on a regular basis and try to do this in a way it does not cost me a lot of time.
This combination of experiences allowed me to come up with a lot of different ideas on improving CLIL lessons. I share these ideas through my online blog as well as coaching sessions with colleagues and notice they really do improve their lessons.
I want you to help you out as well
Teaching about a broad subject as CLIL as well as keeping this easy to digest is a challenge I took upon myself. I want to help out a many teachers as I can, but that is not possible the 'normal' way.
That is why I developed

Frequently Asked Questions
I only know a little about CLIL. Are these courses for me?
Yes, definitely! Although I would start with the “Basics of CLIL” course, as this explains in detail what CLIL is and what you can do with it.
Can you buy single courses or only packs of courses?
You can buy the single courses, but I would suggest buying them in a pack. That way, you have way more value for your money. However, if you only want to buy one course, they are €47,- a course, you can do that, no problem! Just contact me in that case.
How long will I have access to a course once it is bought?
You have access to the courses for a year. That means you can plan yourself when you want to do it, but I would suggest starting with it as soon as possible.
Can you help me plan the courses?
Yes, I will! With every course you can find a planner to help you finish the course in a month! That way you stay motivated to go through all of the courses.
Will the courses be updated?
Yes, whenever I create new updates you will receive those automatically. Also, if you bought access to the bundles of courses, you will gain access to new courses once they are added as well.
Do I have to do all of the modules?
No, feel free to focus on whatever you feel like you need to learn. You do need to finish a course completely in order to receive a certificate, but everyone has different priorities when it comes to learning something.
