CLIL - Content Language Integrated Learning is a method of teaching other fields of knowledge through the means of English. Getting to know this method can significantly expand any teacher's methodological toolkit. It will, however, be especially useful for those teaching other subjects in English and for Young Learner teachers, whose work presupposes developing their learners' cognitive skills and helping them learn about the world through English.


Working with young learners, very young learners and teenagers is a special sphere in teaching, which presupposes specific skills and very detailed knowledge and understanding of the target groups. It has been growing in popularity with many ex-adults-only teachers turning to younger learners. The TKT YL course will help you gain confidence in working with children and teens, expanding your professional horizon.
