Shakespeare in CLIL

Have you heard of Shakespeare in Love?Well, at the CARLEE we prefer Shakespeare in CLIL! Over the last couple of weeks, we have been using the topic of ‘Love and Relationships’ as a basis for our B2 and C1  language and methodology classes, and in yesterday’s classes we used the world’s most famous love story Romeo and Juliet to inspire genuine communication situations.

By asking questions such as, ‘How well do you know the story?’ ‘Can you criticise the main character’s actions?‘What would have happened if Romeo hadn’t killed himself?’, we were aiming to  improve our students’ knowledge of  grammar, encourage natural sounding pronunciation, and develop HOTS, error correction and group work.
