Oral production outcomes in CLIL: an attempt to manage amount of exposure

Abstract: Abstract: This study aims at testing the benefits of CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) on oral skills in English by comparing a group of secondary schoolCLILlearnerstotwoNon-CLILgroupsmatchedforamountofinstruction?? a two-year-ahead group and a peer group. This sampling design is an attempt to tease the effects of exposure, age and CLIL variables apart, something which has notbeenaddressedinmostpreviousCLILresearch.Theanalyses(holisticevaluation, amount and density of production, and use of compensatory strategies) of participants?storytellingsindicatethatCLILlearners?oralabilitiesaresuperiorto those of Non-CLIL groups, especially to those of their exposure-matched peer counterparts. Overall, CLIL learners produce denser and richer oral narrations characterized bybetter content,vocabulary, grammar andfluency, and amarginal use of the first language. These results could be read as indicative of the beneficial effect of CLIL instruction itself on oral production when intervening variables such as amount of exposure and age are managed.
