[L’internationalisation curriculaire dans l’enseignement superieur en Slovaquie par l’integration du contenu et de la langue ; le cas des formations en français]
Maria Rostekova – Maria Palova
The goal of this paper is to determine how certain Slovak universities offering double degrees with French partners deal with the integration of content and language, and how they apply different educational approaches known by the acronym CLIL. As we had assumed, most of the teachers interviewed were not familiar with CLIL. They knew neither its theoretical foundations and principles nor its many possible implementations. Nevertheless, we have observed that many aspects of CLIL are used by pedagogues as part of their teaching. We have also examined the coherence between the approaches deployed by those teachers and the internationalization strategy recommended by the institutions where they teach.
Key words: CLIL, integration of content and language, curricular internationalization, higher education, double degree, questionnaire
