CLIL APPROACH IN A BILINGUAL REGION: SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS' BACKGROUND AND OPINIONS

The main objective of this study is to show the CLIL approach’ situation in some high schools in a bilingual region (Spanish/Catalan) taking into account teachers’ background and opinions. The increasing importance of English language in this globalized world is creating in all students the necessity of learning English language, and not only studying it as a structures’ compendium, but also, applying it to different contexts and situations where this language would be used as a tool for communication. To achieve this goal, the CLIL approach is an effective option because students and teachers see a foreign language as a vehicular one. For this reason, we decided to investigate the situation of this approach in different high schools in Castellón region, taking into account the opinion of English teachers with and without previous CLIL experience and the content subject teachers, also with and without previous CLIL experience. Results show the differences and similarities in opinion among the different types of teachers.
