 CLIL Readers, more than just a Book!

CLIL readers are non-fiction titles which introduce learners to exciting topics related to our world. They offer a great variety of topics that encourage readers to explore subject areas such as Science, History, Geography, etc. Learners enjoy the story as a reading text in several chapters, with stunning photographs which help them follow the plot. Each chapter is accompanied by language activities to help comprehension and develop critical thinking. Every reader brings out a fascinating myth, story or legend to capture the imagination of the learners and offer a different perspective of the topic. At the end of each reader there are portfolios and projects to consolidate and extend the pupils’ language and content learning. All Express Publishing CLIL Readers are accompanied by a digital cross-platform application that contains: the digital version of the reader, a digital audio-visual dictionary, a collection of additional cross-curricular activities as well as captivating videos that support and extend the topic of the reader. The application can be downloaded on 3 different devices (i.e. laptop, i-pad, smart phone) and can be used without internet connection after the download has been completed. Students will receive an activation code to download the digital application which can be used for 3 years.

Contest Challenge

The contest dares students to search for additional information on the topic developed in the reader and design a CLIL page. The page will show a stunning photo and will give amazing information on the topic of the reader that was not presented by the author. Students should explore different readers so as to compile a collection of CLIL pages to form their First Illustrated Encyclopedia! (see Contest Rules and Regulation for more details).


Students organized in groups according to their age and level of English. The project requires both individual study and group work!
