Drawing on their wide experience as CLIL educators and researchers, the authors explore data collected in real CLIL classrooms from two interrelated perspectives: the CLIL classroom as an interactional context for developing language and content, and the genres and registers through which the meanings of the different academic subjects are enacted. From the analysis of this corpus of data, the authors provide a rich description of how CLIL students' language works and may be expected to develop. Also available separately as a hardback.

The analysis is carried out with reference to a number of very useful models of language. Occasionally, however, this makes the book overly theoretical in the sense that more time is expended on classifying uses of language into typologies than on analysing what really works to support student learning.
It is also important to note that because the book is based on actual practice rather than ideal practice, there is a tacit assumption that classrooms are places where a 'transmissionist' approach to pedagogy is the norm. Though there are places where group work is examined ( in a very undifferentiated way), the authors largely ignore how language roles might change in a true inquiry-based classroom.
