Hard CLIL or soft CLIL? That is the question. Norman Cain
How old is CLIL? The term CLIL was ‘invented’ by David Marsh, University of Jyväskylä, Finland in 1994 "CLIL refers to situations where subjects, or parts of subjects, are taught through a foreign language with dual-focused aims, namely the learning of content and the simultaneous learning of a foreign language."
Are you a CLIL teacher?

What is Hard (or Strong) CLIL? This is CLIL where the teaching and learning is focused primarily on the subject content and so is content-driven This means that the subject content is given primary focus, this applies to both content and the administrative implications. For example, a school that uses total immersion – where the academic (and possibly social) medium is in the new language – would operate under a strong version of CLIL and favoursubject concepts and skills in the language being taught. .
What is Soft (or Weak) CLIL? The soft version of CLIL is one in which the teaching and learning is focusedprimarilyon language and so islanguage-driven. A language-driven approach mean foreign language classes using more content than is typical of such programmes, or using didactic units which make greater use of subject-based content. The language-driven approach has language learning as its basic objective.
What is Mid (or Comfortable) CLIL? The mid (or ‘comfortable’) version of CLIL is one where lesson subjects, or parts of subjects, are taught via a foreign language with dual-focused aims, and where learning is a combinationofbothlanguage and content.

Spring seeds leaves sun water a flower
Italian or English? Guarda il ciclo della vita e scrivi le parole. Ecco un seme di girasole. Si semina in primavera e poi inizia a crescere e diventa una pianta. Ha bisogno di concime, calore e acqua. Dopo qualche settimana spuntano le foglie e allora ci vuole tanto sole. Poi arrivano i fiori – guarda come si girano verso il sole! Quando il colore del fiore cambia da giallo a marrone si vedono tanti semi. Alcuni semi puoi darli agli uccelli, altri puoi tenerli per piantarli la prossima primavera quando il ciclo della natura ricomincia, oppure puoi mangiarli tu!
