How CLIL positively affects language teaching practices: A cognitive approach to error treatment.


The rationale of CLIL as a bilingual education approach that integrates subject-matter content and additional language learning has led to reconsider practices that have conventionally been more applicable to language teaching (cf. Ellis, 2013). Among those practices, it is worth stressing error treatment, as errors have become gradually considered an inherent (i.e. natural) part of language acquisition (cf. Pawlak, 2014). Therefore, an alternative for error treatment is suggested, pointing to a non-corrective sort of intervention upon errors (Truscott, 1999), something apparently more common among CLIL teachers concerning at least error correction level(s) of implicitness (Milla and García Mayo, 2014). The novelty lies then in the fact that this alternative error treatment could be extrapolated to language teaching in terms of oral interaction since correction (i.e. intervention) techniques do not always avoid errors from being committed/repeated. Instead, it may depend on learners´ level(s) of cognitive development according to their interlanguage stage.
