Erasmus + – English study spring in Scarborough

In spring 2016, Štěpán Macura attended a course focusing on CLIL and language skills in Scarborough, UK. He found the CLIL method practical and inspiring and appreciated the practical activities (warm-ups, icebreakers, reading comprehension activities, activities using video or audio recordings), which were used as model CLIL methods. Štěpán tried them out in the practical afternoon classes and acknowledged the fact that they can easily and instantly be applied in any subject. Besides methodology, the course also dealt with development speaking and listening skills. Meeting colleagues from all over Europe, discussing various issues with them, exchanging experience, challenging the national stereotypes – this all was, according to Štěpán, the greatest benefit of his study stay in the UK.
