DDL&CLIL Integration

Learning Activities and Resources Based on the Use of Corpora for CLIL Geography in a Cambridge International IGCSE® High School in Italy

Emma Abbate    Liceo Statale Alessandro Manzoni, Caserta, Italia    



This paper presents a series of e-CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning combined with ICT) activities based on the use of corpora, taken from experiments during the 2017-2018 school term in four Italian upper secondary classes. In the four classes considered in the present study, Geography is taught in English in the CLIL approach for Cambridge IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education). The Task-based activities of reading and listening comprehension, grammar learning and vocabulary building, have been focused on Cooperative Learning’s strategy and submitted on a teacher monitored e-learning platform through constant application of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) in the classroom.
