Launching and developing a sustainable CLIL programme need not be a daunting prospect for schools. In this practical and insightful article, leading CLIL author Peeter Mehisto guides us through the planning and the pitfalls that can make or break a CLIL programme.

In this article Mehisto places emphasis on preparing the ground and bringing stakeholders on board: be they sceptical parents, students, politicans or school inspectors. He addresses practical considerations (does your school have enough space, money, qualified teachers?) as well as ethical ones, such as avoiding elitism and/or gender bias when organising student participation.
