Dear friends and colleagues in Langscape,
In the last two years, Langscape members Stephan Breidbach and José Medina were involved in a EU-funded project focusing on bringing together methods and activities from Drama Pedagogy and Content and Language Integrated Learning: playingCLIL.
The main product of this project is now available online: a substantial e-book compilation of annotated interactive games ready for use in content matter classes taught through a foreign language.
Whilst the full version of the handbook is available in English, executive summaries of the handbook also exist in three further languages for easy dissemination: German, Romanian, and Spanish. Click here to access the project website and have all the materials at your fingertips completely free of charge!
We have also developed
- a one-week training course for CLIL teachers (in-service),
- an introductory workshop to playingCLIL for a week-end, and, last but not least,
- a 90-minute quick-starter seminar.
All three formats are available on demand.
You can also follow the project on Facebook – if you like it, like it! For queries and enquiries contact:
