• COURSE INFORMATION:
CLIL course is aimed for teachers and school staff from pre-school level to primary, secondary, vocational, adult and special needs education, staff of non-government organizations, government and policy makers and company staff. The course will focus on CLIL methodology in a practical way as well as Teaching Foreign Languages techniques to improve our teaching practice as much as possible. Participants are expected to have at least B1 level of English.

During this course participants will learn everything about CLIL principles, how to design a CLIL course at the same time that you could have the resources needed to adapt your current work to CLIL methodology. Everything in a practical sense so that teachers coming to this course end it with a great knowledge of this theory and how to implement it. One of the strengths of the Course lies in the fact that its teaching is based not only in theorical activities but also in practical activities. In every single topic, managers will give you key contents and advices supported by practical cases and group work so that you are completely capable of implementing this methodology in your teaching practice with success.

• METHODOLOGY:
CLIL course is based on theoretical lessons and presentations of examples of good practice as well as discussions and experience comparisons. The course will have lectures, seminars and workshops to ensure full comprehension and every day assingnment support. Besides, before the starting date of the course, all participants will be invited to participate in an online previous formation related to essential vocabulary, grammar and skills needed to use English as Second Language Teaching so that all participants have the required skills to carry out any activity proposed during the course.
Every day, we will add new information about CLIL methodoloy, classroom management, engagement techniques at the same time that we will create new links to strenghten future common projects. By the end of the course, participants should have a specific CLIL lesson or unit designed depending on the course chosen. All the projects will be assessed and ready to incorporate it to their syllabus design. In this group work different participants will collaborate to learn about good practices settled in participant countries around Europe so that the learning process will be as complete as possible. Furthermore, trainers will make extensive use of evidence-based examples and experiences.

The methodology will have daily motivation activities, brainstormings, working in pairs or groups, simulations and practical cases based on real classroom situations. Besides, our experienced trainers will support and stimulate the networking and cooperation among participants. At the end of the course, there is a final assessment. It will consist on a compulsory oral presentation about your CLIL project in groups to check the real understanding of all the contents. The course will provide the participants an attendance certificate including the detailed information about the course, e.g. title, programme and schedule. In addition, a Europass Mobility Certificate can be added on request.

The course was attended by a small number of people coming from different countries and different types of schools. Sometimes this aspect was positive, sometimes less positive, especially when I had to put into practice activities that are not meant for teenagers, my target students. But reflecting on that I can say that those moments gave me anyway the chance to revise English by listening the others and communicating with them to carry out the activities. As for the organization, Mr Gallardo has always been present and very quick in solving our problems or answering our questions that came up before leaving for Iceland and while we were there. Besides the organization of the activities was very good. We managed to have a bit of everything.

The training was about CLIL principles, theory and practical methodologies. The course present examples of good practice as well as discussions and experience comparisons. It brought me a clear and precise vision of CLIL approach, with new contexts of learning, and a global perspective, in an intercultural context with all the students from all over Europe. My experience with the course provider brought me what i expected, for instance about designing a CLIL unit, techniques for scaffolding. It has also refreshed teaching my linguistic and skills, in relation with other teachers i shared my experience with, during the course or the cultural activities provided by the compagny.

The course has been well structured and it has given responses to all my expectations. The methodology has had daily motivation activities and practical cases based on real classroom situations. Besides, the trainer has stimulate the networking and cooperation among participants. My experience with the company that provides the course, PMSE+, has been very positive. Director Manager has been in contact with me since I enrolled in the course and he has informed me of everything I need about it. In addition, it has offered different very well organized extracurricular activities that have allowed me to get to know the geography and culture of the place.

It was a very valuable course, giving a lot of practical things for different approaches as well as evaluation of CLIL lessons. Course providers were really helpful and everything was well-organised.

We found the course very interesting both in content and in the number of contacts made. The organizing company pmserasmus plus, always attentive to our needs and to cover any unforeseen event, knew how to perfectly combine the mornings of the course with afternoons where the participants of different courses were able to share experiences and establish contact for subsequent projects. In our case, these afternoons of excursion through the country supposed a double benefit, since, given the geological interest of the country, they provided vast experiences to apply in the classroom in the matter of Geology. All the knowledge acquired in both CLIL techniques and geology are being applied in our classes from the beginning of this course. We are also in charge of spreading the benefits of our institute's participation in an Erasmus project, and thus prepare our students for the next ka201 where they will be protagonists.

El curs ens va semblar molt interessant tant en el contingut com en el nombre de contactes realitzats. L'empresa organitzadora pmserasmus plus, sempre atenta a les nostres necessitats i a cobrir qualsevol imprevist, va saber combinar perfectament els matins de curs amb vesprades on els participants de diferents cursos vam poder compartir experiències i establir contacte per a posteriors projectes. En el nostre cas, aquestes vesprades d'excursió pel país van suposar un doble benefici, ja que, donat l'interés geològic del país, van proporcionar vastes experiències per a aplicar a l'aula en la matèria de Geologia. Tots els coneixements adquirits tant en tècniques CLIL com en geologia estan sent aplicats en les nostres classes des de l'inici del present curs. També ens estem encarregant de difondre els beneficis de la participació del nostre institut en un projecte Erasmus, i preparem així al nostre alumnat per a un pròxim ka201 on ells seran protagonistes.
