Aim: Computers are a basic tool required in Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL), which involves teaching a curricular subject through the medium of computers and a language other than the native tongue normally used. CLIL is taking place and has been found to be effective in all sectors of education at all ages, to adult and higher education. Its success has been growing over the past ten years and continues to do so. Professors working with CLIL are specialists in their own discipline rather than traditional language teachers. They are usually fluent speakers of the target language, bilingual or native speakers, working in partnership with other departments to offer the program in various subjects. Benefits of CLIL include, but are not limited to: building intercultural knowledge and understanding, developing intercultural communication skills alongside with multilingual interests and attitudes, improving language competence and oral communication skill, providing opportunities to study content through different perspectives, and diversifying methods and forms of classroom practice. It does not require extra teaching hours and complements other subjects rather than competing with them. Hence it is a modern and effective approach, which increases learners' motivation and confidence in both language and subject taught.
