Worldwide, there is an increasing need for higher proficiency in English. In order to cope with this, a large number of countries have turned to the bilingual methodology Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL).
CLIL means teaching non-language subjects (e.g., science) through a second or a foreign language. As a result, there are many non-language teachers in Norway who are teaching their subject in English to Norwegian students, without any form of certification. We know very little about how this methodology works in Norway, and if the students feel that it is conducive to learning the subject or English.
Karina Rose Mahan wrote her article-based Ph.D. thesis on Norwegian CLIL schools. She filmed three schools across the country, observing how a wide range of CLIL teachers taught their subjects. She also elicited questionnaires from CLIL students, determining how they perceived the CLIL methodology. The findings resulted in three articles, which described how these schools taught CLIL, the strengths and pitfalls of the CLIL methodology.
