TOEIC vocabulary teaching: applying CLIL

Date and Time: 
Saturday, 12 January 2013 - 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Speaker: 
Takashi Uemura

Content and language integrated learning (CLIL) is a pedagogic approach to develop L2 learners’ communicative competence by focusing on both teaching subject and language. However, there has been little research on implementing CLIL in TOEIC courses, as TOEIC mainly tests learners’ business English proficiency.
