New book NUGSE will assist schoolteachers to develop a deeper understanding of CLIL methodology and use it in practice

Our new book 'CLIL classroom practices in multilingual education in Kazakhstan: guidelines and examples' has been edited by Xabier San Isidro, Sulushash Kerimkulova and one of the most reputed scholars in Applied Linguistics in education, Do Coyle, from the University of Edinburgh, who defined and posited the main theoretical constructs of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL). The book is a practice-oriented and hands-on resource which focuses on how to create enriched CLIL experiences for any learners. It is based on twenty key steps which provide a guide through different stages in the planning process. Written in three languages (English, Kazakh and Russian), it comprises a methodological chapter and nine teaching units for different areas (physics, computer science, biology, or history): four units in English, two in Kazakh and two in Russian. Designed by some of our second-year students of the Master of Arts in Multilingual Education at Nazarbayev University Graduate School of Education (2018-2020), the nine units provide practical examples of how CLIL might work in practice across themes and especially through different languages.
