Abstract

The integration of language and content takes place in a multitude of forms and goes under various names and acronyms, and this multiplicity of nomenclature and practices obscures a number of important questions. Do we all mean the same thing we refer (for example) to EMI, or to CLIL? Which forms best capture the unique affordances of language and content integration? What evidence is there for the relative success of different forms? This talk will use case studies from two very different contexts, Sweden and Hong Kong, to explore these questions. It will conclude by outlining ways in which improved outcomes can be attained by more reflective and conscious choices among these various models.
