Introduction to CLIL

Course summary

Porto, Portugal

4-day Course

Erasmus+ KA1

CLIL (content and language integrated learning) methodology can provide the necessary tools that teachers need to guide understanding and support the learning of their students.

CLIL is not a new form of language education. It is not a new form of subject education. It is an innovative fusion of both. Inherent to both definitions is the bringing together of two areas that for the most part had stood apart: subject teaching and language teaching.

CLIL programs aim to increase students’ subject-area knowledge while at the same time improving their knowledge of and skills in the target language. In addition, students should improve their own ability to learn and come to understand and appreciate a new culture.

Course Duration and Costs

All costs can be supported with a KA grant under the Erasmus+ programme.

For a 4-day course, Learning Together charges 420 euros per participant (A+B).

For our 4-day course, the course fee is 320 EUR per participant, for tuition and materials (4-day course x 80,00 EUR per day). This can be covered with the course fee that you receive with your KA1 grant: 80 EUR / day / person.


The course fee for our 2022 courses has been adjusted to meet the new KA1 grant budget (Erasmus+ Programme 2021-2027). Before, sending organisations received 70€/day/person for course fees. Now, the new KA1 grant provides 80€/day/person.

Payment of 100 EUR per participant (total amount).

This fee also includes our social program, which you can see below.


In the previous Erasmus+ programme, each educational organisation also received 350 EUR per participant for organisational support. Learning Together only charged 150 EUR for administration and organisation costs (local organisation and logistics, pedagogical support activities, learning validation, certification and Europass Mobility validation). With the new programme, the organisational support fees are now a standard 100 EUR per person – however, they can vary according project type (job-sadowing, long-term,…).
