This volume explores a highly topical issue in second and foreign language education: the spreading practice in mainstream education to teach content subjects through a foreign language. CLIL has been enthusiastically embraced as a language enrichment measure in many contexts and finally research can offer principled insights into its dynamics and potentials. The editors’ introductory and concluding chapters offer a synthesis of current CLIL research as well as a critical discussion of unresolved issues relating both to theoretical concerns and research practice. The individual contributions by authors from a range of European contexts report on current empirical research in this dynamic field. The focus of these chapters ranges from theoretical to empirical, from learning outcomes to classroom talk, examining both the written and spoken mode across secondary and tertiary educational contexts. This volume is a valuable resource not only for researchers and teachers but also for policy makers.

“The complex state of affairs of CLIL in diverse educational contexts is well represented in the volume's contribution and carefully elucidated by the editors in a useful retrospective and important prospective view. The result is a very valuable contribution to the entire CLIL enterprise. ”
“The book is a significant contribution to the field and I am sure that it will be quite successful in the academic context of AL.”
