Study visit to Finland

Monika Jakubicz, Żaneta Orlik, Marzena Pepłowska, Magdalena Szewc, Edyta Witek, Karolina Żyra and one of the project coordinators and our university mentor, dr Magdalena Szpotowicz,  had a pleasure to participate in the study visit in Finland in Jyväskylä that took place on 23- 27 March.

 

We visited Kortepohja Primary School, Viitaniemi Lower Secondary School and the University of Jyväskylä. In the primary school we had a possibility to observe CLIL lessons and in the secondary school we saw English speaking classes. We were divided into three pairs and each focused on a different aspect:

 

1) Space – how is it arranged to facilitate learning?

2) Language support in CLIL (scaffolding) – how is it used?

3) Content and non-language skills – how are they taught?

 

After the study visit we developed presentations in order to share our knowledge with other students:

During the study visit we also shared information about our programme with the students and professors from Finland (https://prezi.com/bm8clqb7lw36/bilingual-education/?utm_campaign=share&utm_medium=copy).

 

          

 

 

Thanks to this study visit we expanded our knowledge on CLIL teaching. Generally, it was a great and enriching experience.
