The Faculty of Education at The University of Hong Kong would like to find out the needs of prospective students for our newly developed programme, Master of Science in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL). Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is defined as a dual-focused educational approach in which an additional language is used for the learning and teaching of both content and language. It can be used as an umbrella term to encompass various programmes which adopt students’ second/foreign language as the medium of instruction when teaching non-language content subjects, such as immersion programmes, English-medium education, Language Across the Curriculum.
