abstract

In the last few years, Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) has been extensively implemented in the Italian school system and particularly in the Autonomous Province of Trento. This article aims to analyse students’ perception of the quality of their CLIL experience since they are the final recipients of CLIL. Results suggest that students acknowledge the positive impact of CLIL on their L2 proficiency (English). However, the success of CLIL seems to be strongly dependent on the CLIL teacher’s linguistic competence in the L2 and on the CLIL curriculum design, which should avoid oversimplification of the subject matter taught by means of the L2.
