Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)
Learners’ view on influence of CLIL on their future employability
This research aims to investigate second language learners’ perception of the influence of CLIL on their employability. As English is the lingua franca of business in many countries, a fast-growing interest in CLIL can be observed in English medium institutions all over the world. This study aims to uncover if learners’ motivation, (i.e. their view on their chances on future employability) is positively correlated with the implementation of CLIL.
