English for music education

This article (which starts on page 69 of the issue) presents a brief overview of Content Based Instruction, along with a discussion of some of its more commonly practiced models (theme-based, sheltered, adjunct, and SCLT). It has situated CBI within the broader paradigm of CLT, articulated the underlying principles of CBI, and shown how these principles mesh with those of the communicatively oriented classroom. It has also included the classroom extracts which illustrate the underlying principles in action, and which provide a clearer picture of how content and language provide complementary aspects of the curriculum and how the input-rich environment of the CBI classroom can lead to successful language acquisition.
