Featured Article: British Council Roundtable on CLIL by Nora Kaplan
Undoubtedly, one of the highlights of our 2015 Convention was the Roundtable organized and moderated by Mark Levy (British Council) on this crucial topic in present-day Spanish education system. Crucial because CLIL not only implies the learning of a foreign language but also that of the subject content Spanish children are supposed to know when they finish their primary/secondary school.

Featured Article: Sound and Vision by Fiona Mauchline
Close your eyes and visualise. Imagine you’re holding a glass of exquisite wine, glinting, ruby, citrine or garnet, tantalising. Or a glass of water, gelid, crystalline, mountain spring water. There is a higgledy-piggledy fan of slivers of something utterly delicious on a smoke-grey slate slab in front of you.
