The art classroom provides the perfect context for learning an additional language. Students’ natural enthusiasm for art flows into learning the target language. This webinar is perfect for primary school art and Languages teachers who would like to implement CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) or would like to find more inspiring ways to teach languages. In this webinar I will share my most successful CLIL projects combining art and language, as well as language routines and games to engage students in learning the additional language.
