IATEFL held its 53rd Annual Conference in Liverpool from 2 to 5 April and those of us who could not attend this unique event can now access recorded sessions from the Conference through IATEFL Online, supported by their Strategic Partner, the British Council.
One of the plenary speakers was Aleksandra Zaparucha. She is a Geography and English teacher from Poland, with 30 years of experience in Geography and EFL teaching, including 15 years of engagement in CLIL.
Before we start enjoying our well-deserved Easter break, may I share her superb reflection on CLIL with you:
On May 7th we will meet again for our CLIL seminar session and besides sharing our CLIL units as we had scheduled, we will comment on Alexandra’s inspiring conference.
My heartfelt thanks to you, Alexandra, for encouraging us to continue developing CLIL as we have been doing for more than twenty years now. The same as you, we also believe that CLIL is here to stay because it enables us to bring the real school curriculum into our classrooms.
