Summary/Abstract: CLIL – Content and Language Integrated Learning – is an evolving approach where subjects are taught and studied through a non-native language, which is more challenging and intensive, as there is more idiom exposure and the students acquire knowledge and skills in various areas of the modern curriculum required by the global markets and the knowledge society. All CLIL subjects stem from the issues that define the knowledge society: active citizenship, business, engineering, management, marketing, technology, environment, information and communication, literacy and social sciences. This approach forms confident graduates with enhanced academic pro-cessing strategies and communication skills, able to favour intercultural understanding and foster community values.
