CLIL in New Contexts

Content & Language Integrated Learning or CLIL refers usually to the use of a foreign language (FL) or a language other than the native language (L2) to teach content subjects in high school classrooms. The focus of research into CLIL usually revolves around the prestige language and content subject combinations mostly English+STEM in European countries and is associated with the internationalization of the school curriculum to make high school graduates more competitive in the international job market. The current issue of interface welcomes papers on this highly topical issue from CLIL practitioners as well as researchers but would also like to open up the discussion to include (i) all languages and subjects, (ii) primary, secondary and tertiary education contexts.
