In this seminar, Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and Content-based Language Teaching (CBLT) in different contexts will be discussed. Using these approaches in bilingual education and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs will be two areas of focus.


For example, invited guest speakers from Australia will explain how CLIL is used there, where it has been adopted in bilingual education programs. We hope this seminar will provide many opportunities to share ideas on how to improve English language education in Japan. Please join us. Everyone is welcome. Free admission and no pre-registration required.
