Hi !! How are you? I hope you are doing well. This post is dedicated to an educational approach that we are learning at the teacher training college.  

Here goes a little introduction to it:

CLIL(Content and Language Integrated Learning) refers to situations where subjects (such as History, Geography, Maths, etc)  are taught through a Foreign Language with dual-focused aims. This means, the learning of content and the simultaneous learning of a Foreign Language. 
According to the 4Cs, a CLIL lesson should combine the following elements:
-Content: Progression in knowledge, skills and understanding.
-Communication: Interaction, using language to learn whilst learning to use the language.
-Cognition: Students have to develop their thinking skills, understanding and language.
-Culture: “self” and “other” awareness, exposure to different perspectives and shared understandings.

Finally, this is an interesting short video about this approach:
