2nd, 3rd and 4th grades of ESO

This website is designed for Spanish students who learn Physics and Chemistry in Bilingual Education Program.

Here you can find contents, activities and links to different web pages which are explained in English. Moreover, students can find the Syllabus belongs to these subjects.

I'd like to give thanks to Patricio Gómez Lesarri who has designed and done almost all of these activities, notes and doesn´t mind sharing them with students and teachers (all this material has creative commons rights). Moreover, the 2nd course of ESO syllabus ha been done by the Physics and Chemistry Department of Juan de la Cierva High School (Vélez-Málaga)

Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)

Content and language integrated learning is a term created in 1994 by David Marsh and Anne Maljers as a methodology similar to but distinct from language immersion and content-based instruction. It's an approach for learning content through an additional language (foreign or second), thus teaching both the subject and the language. The idea of its proponents was to create an "umbrella term" which encompasses different forms of using language as the medium of instruction.

CLIL is fundamentally based on methodological principles established by research on "language immersion". This kind of approach has been identified as very important by the European Commission because: "It can provide effective opportunities for pupils to use their new language skills now, rather than learn them now for use later. It opens doors on languages for a broader range of learners, nurturing self-confidence in young learners and those who have not responded well to formal language instruction in general education. It provides exposure to the language without requiring extra time in the curriculum, which can be of particular interest in vocational settings." The European Commission has therefore decided to promote the training of teachers to "..enhancing the language competences in general, in order to promote the teaching of non-linguistic subjects in foreign languages".
