After a successful 2-year trial period of Pheno-CLIL with High School students in Mexico, a prototype has been designed for younger learners.
Pheno-CLIL is a signature pedagogy for teaching subjects in English. It combines two complementary across-the-curriculum methods: Phenomenon-based Learning (PhBL) and Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL).
PhBL develops systems-thinking (seeing patterns in information and problem-solving) where
students learn a single topic from different inter-disciplinary perspectives.
CLIL develops language and content simultaneously. Described as the ultimate language teaching methodology by the late David Graddol, it has become the most significant change agent in English language education globally over the past two decades.
