The CLIL Matrix is an awareness-raising and training tool for teachers who wish:
- to consider the skills and knowledge necessary for achieving quality CLIL
- to examine the extent to which they are prepared for teaching through CLIL
The CLIL Matrix is a 4 dimensional core framework built around the core elements of CLIL: Content, Language, Integration and Learning. These four elements are realised through a set of four parameters: Culture, Communication, Cognition and Community. This results in a matrix array of 16 indicators. These indicators are the basis for ensuring quality CLIL in learning and teaching of both content and language.
