Based tasks in CLIL settings

Main Article Content

Evgenia Tsimerman


The article is devoted to advanced learners’ motivation within content and language integrated learning (CLIL) settings. The author analyses students’ motivation and anxiety for a task from the point of the dopamine and the opioid systems, the input–output aspect, heuristic and algorithmic procedures. Considering scientific publications reviewed, the author demonstrates a novel idea for CLIL settings—professionally-oriented incident-based tasks. An example of an incident-based task for Master’s students majoring in management is given. Being based on the same principles, the novel tasks proposed are relevant to CLIL. The author concludes that the incident-based tasks not only stimulate experienced students’ motivation, but also contribute to their personal qualities and professional skills development.
