ABSTRACT
Is teaching purely a local matter? In the field of CLIL we find specifically local developments within a broader European movement. The paper sets out to show links and synergies between European language policies on CLIL and their implementation in European situations and in Austria, in particular. It is now on the agenda to move from policy level to take a look at effects,practice and actual processes and also at the gap between school-based developments, teacher education and evaluation of outcomes. Some selected examples will lead to classroom practice. Thus, the focus in the first part is on a more general level. In the second part of the paper, the focus is on the potentials of methodologies with reference to working on themes of citizenship and, specifically, sustainable development. I would like to suggest how the interplay language learning skills may function in the CLIL context and also look at the role of lexis and structure.
