[The strengths of this volume] include, but are not limited to

- the longitudinal nature and the remarkable time span of three years,

- the multitude of perspectives and the diverse CLIL settings included,

- the copious amounts of quantitative and rich qualitative data collected...

- and the complexity of statistical analyses.


, Journal of Immersion and Content-Based Language Education 9:1


Based on evidence from a research project on upper-secondary CLIL and non-CLIL programmes in Sweden, this book offers new, challenging and thought-provoking findings on a range of topics relating to L1 and L2 learning outcomes and participants’ perspectives. It is of great interest to CLIL practitioners and researchers globally.


Tom Morton, Universidad Internacional de la Rioja, Spain


This well-rounded and accomplished volume represents a 360 degree examination of CLIL education in Sweden. Novel perspectives, such as a look at effects on L1 development are added to the remit of CLIL research and one wishes for the underlying longitudinal, interdisciplinary and mixed-method project to be replicated beyond Sweden. This book ought to be consulted by researchers, practitioners and policymakers from many other CLIL contexts.


Christiane Dalton-Puffer, University of Vienna, Austria


This volume provides a comprehensive overview of CLIL in Swedish senior high schools and answers to calls for more longitudinal studies on CLIL. The authors offer valuable insights into the effects of CLIL on students’ English and Swedish, the societal and motivational factors underpinning CLIL, and the pedagogical implications of their findings. The book will be essential reading for anyone interested in a thoroughly contextualised account of CLIL.
