Do you think CLIL is hard to apply?

You are not the only one!

When I started out with teaching CLIL almost 15 years ago it was quite a struggle.

There was no procedure, no plan, no guidance on how to do it.

I know what CLIL stood for,

but that did not mean I knew how to apply it effectively to my lesson.

And preparing it in as little time as possible was seemed quite impossible.

This gave me not just cost a lot of time,

but also gave me a feeling of overwhelm and stress.

You Want to use CLIL, but...


You feel overwhelmed with everything you 'should' do


You are not even sure if what you are doing is 'good enough'

No time

You find it takes forever to prepare CLIL lessons

You simply need to know the next step to take

What I needed were simple, actionable activities I could implement.

Activities that I did not learn from a book, but experienced myself.

In order to make sure I knew exactly what is was like to teach in a CLIL way.

On not just that.

I also needed to know where to start learning about CLIL.

The benefits of learning CLIL this way

Clear path

No feeling of overwhelm or stress, but trust the process will provide everything you need.

Actionable steps

No hours of preparation, but simple and actioanable steps to take to get to the next level

free time

No 60 minute preparations for a lesson, but less preparation time to allow for more free time next to your teaching job

What other people say about Quality CLIL Coaching

Engaging activities!

We were learning theory through activities which we were doing ourselves. This way we could really remember those activities and use them later in our work
