abstract

The aim of the present study is to investigate the nature of code-switching in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) classes from the students’ point of view. After a brief review of the literature concerning CLIL and the issue of code-switching, the implementation of CLIL in the school system of the Italian Autonomous Province of Trento (PAT) will be outlined as data, gathered by means of anonymous questionnaires were administered in four different high schools of this province. Data analysis will lead to deeper understanding of the reasons for students’ and teachers’ code-switching in CLIL classes. Ultimately, this paper contributes to the CLIL literature as it provides an insight into student’s perception of code-switching, which is a widespread linguistic strategy used in CLIL classes.
