Ideas and inspiration for CLIL activities
Personal coaching to achieve maximum results
I know what it feels like...
Hi, my name is Patrick de Boer. CLIL Coach and teacher
Over a decade ago I started teaching using CLIL....and quickly noticed I had to do a lot of extra work.
Implementing language elements in my lesson, figuring out new activities, applying things like 'scaffolding' or 'BICS'.
After becoming a CLIL coach, I used this experience to help out fellow CLIL teachers.
Every CLIL teacher has personal challenges, but I found many of these challenges overlap.
This knowledge allows me to help you out with your challenges as well!
You need to prepare a CLIL lesson for the next day.
As you think about the different lesson stages of a CLIL lesson, you come up with various ways to accommodate the different learning styles of your students.
It takes only minutes to think of activities for the different moments, making sure students are actively engaged with language.
You have a quick look at your database of activities to see if you can think of something new, but decide you only need to implement a few changes to the way you scaffold the learning process of the students.
The whole process took you 15 minutes. Max.
This can be possible for you!
The online courses teach you the right things to do
The coaching helps you to actually implement them in your situation
"Patrick is a born presenter and teacher. He is always open to various questions and ready to support every student.
I strongly advise to take this course to everybody who interested in CLIL and wants to be engaged in activities connected with CLIL implementation."
"Because of Patrick's help, I became much more confident in teaching CLIL and apply it more often than I used to (I even share CLIL ideas with my colleagues now)."
Mieke, The Netherlands
"I really enjoyed the videos, especially because it is not just 'talk' but you show and involve us by making us experience the activities as well"
Dr. Gottfried Thomas, Germany
I am just a 'simple' teacher. I teach, I do not do research. (Don't have the time to do that..)
Nor do I intend to do so anytime soon.
Sure, research is important, but whenever I read research related to CLIL I always immediately think: okay, so how does this apply to my classroom? To my lesson? Tomorrow?
In other words: I do not want to be bored with theoretical knowledge, ideas or criteria.
I want practical examples, lesson ideas I can apply immediately and activities that require only a little bit of time to prepare. Preferably none.
With that idea in mind, I created these online courses.
You will not just learn about CLIL when you follow my courses.
You will experience the activities. It's not just: do this and that.
By experiencing the activities yourself, you gain a better understanding of what it feels like to do the activities as a student.
And even better: the courses are way more interesting that way.
As a workshop leader, I find work to be the important element of that phrase.
So, instead of videos, you should view my course materials as workshops in video format.
And that is what makes my courses different.

That is how confident I am this material works for you!
You will have access to the courses and all of the material for 1 year.
Not sure? Just contact me and ask me your questions, I'll let you know if I can help you out!
No, that is the great thing about online learning. You simply only do the courses that fit your needs best. No need to go over all of the basics if you already know those, right?
I understand online learning might be a bit of risk. Maybe you have bought online courses before and you did not finish them.
That is why I combine it with coaching.
This helps both to motivate you to do the work as well as to make sure the material suits your specific needs!
Yes, you can! With three monthly payments of €100,- you can also sign up. I totally understand that might be interesting for teachers who have to pay for this themselves.
Yes, I update courses and add new courses on a regular basis. You can even ask me for certain topics if you are interested in those!
Yes, after you have finished the final quiz of a course, you will receive a certificate of completion.
No worries, if you let me know your school has agreed you will receive access. I can trust you right?
