A Teacher Training Workshop in Bangkok, Thailand

CLIL and EMI is not only big in Europe – it seems to be on the rise everywhere. This is what I found during an intense and exciting day at the School of Liberal Arts at King Monkut’s University of Technology, where I conducted a two-hour workshop on Scaffolding Techniques in CLIL/EMI, and most important, had a chance to meet with lecturers, Masters students and Secondary school teachers who are interested in EMI in Secondary and Tertiary education.

The workshop was organized as a taster of the more intensive training I offer EMI lecturers at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, and sought to engage participants in reflecting on the rationale of scaffolding learning when teaching through a foreign language, as well as applying a number of reception, transformation and production scaffolds suited to the learner’s language and subject competence.

I am particularly grateful to the faculty at KMUTT, especially Richard Watson Todd and Ornkanya Yaoharee, for their invitation and for making the workshop possible.
