about Vitoria-Gasteiz

  • This symposium took place in May 2009 and was aimed at primary and secondary school teachers, lecturers, university students and researchers interested in CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning).
  • The CLIL approach has been praised on many different grounds, as it is believed to improve not only foreign language competence, but also specific language terminology, intercultural communication, motivation, implicit and incidental learning, and communication among teachers and learners.
  • The symposium was held entirely in English, but it intends to cater for all those interested in L2 or foreign language acquisition, as the issues dealt with should be applicable to any L2.
  • Students attending the symposium obtained 1 credit (libre elección/aukera askea).
