CALL Support in Context: Contrasting Approaches in Irish and Scottish Gaelic

Caoimhín Ó Dónaill, Gordon Wells

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site

Abstract

The aims and products of the TOOLS for CLIL Teachers project are outlined, with links to sample materials, further evaluation and analysis of issues relating to dissemination and training, and to technical description. Particular attention is drawn to differential approaches to support material production between Irish and Scottish Gaelic. In the Irish context emphasis is placed on an immersive approach for the benefit of relatively high numbers of speakers and learners. In the Scottish context absolute and relative numbers are lower, and the rationale has been pragmatic and skills-based with a focus on community use.
