L’Enseignement d’une Matière Intégrée dans la Langue Etrangère

CLIL en anglais – Content and Language Integrated Learning

Connu aussi sous le titre DNL Discipline Non Linguistique.




En France, EMILE commence après deux années de renforcement linguistique, donc généralement en 2nde après deux années d’anglais supplémentaires en 4e et 3e. En Afrique Occidentale, EMILE démarre dès la CP. Depuis 2009, on m’invite à Dakar pour animer un stage dédié à l’EMILE en cycle 2 et en cycle 3.

The origins of CLIL or DNL or EMILE, as it was originally known, are explained here on the Emilangues website : http://www.emilangues.education.fr/international/emile-clil-europe

A good source of information but lesson ideas for older learners : http://www.emilangues.education.fr/
