The origins and development of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)
The idea of giving equal priority to content and language is not new and goes back even 5,000 years (cf. Mehisto et al. 2008; Tejada Molina, Pérez Cañado, and Luque Agulló 2005).

It is also worth mentioning that there was the time when Latin was used as a language of instruction in European universities (in the field of medicine, law or science).
