Abstract

The integration of content and language (ICL) takes place in a number of different forms, and is referred to by a number of different terms. This chapter examines English medium instruction (EMI) by situating it among other forms of ICL. It begins with a portraits of three common forms of ICL: immersion, content and language integrated learning, and EMI. The respective characteristics of these forms of instruction are contrasted, and the evidence for their success is taken up. Cameos of EMI in two different settings are provided. The chapter concludes by identifying ways in which other forms of ICL can inform EMI.
