You can find many good definitions and explanations about CLIL !
For example on the British council website
What is CLIL?
Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is a competence-based
teaching approach that is gaining ground in European education systems.
The idea is to teach both the subject and the language, and is captured
in the phrase “using language to learn, learning to use language.”.
CLIL encourages the use of curricula which promote the right
interpersonal skills, cultural sensitivity and communication and
language abilities which are in demand by today’s employers.
“This approach is a breath of fresh air the kids respond really well to.”
