English language teaching (ELT) in higher education serves mainly to enhance the professional language competences of students. It can take several forms, including English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and Academic English (AE). The objectives of ESP courses in higher education are to prepare students for their professional lives by developing communicative language skills. Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) methodology offers the potential to combine the learning of a foreign language with the content of professional subjects. Moreover, it also offers a new dimension in thinking and deepening foreign language competences within non-linguistic subjects. These aspects contribute towards ELT modernization with the aim of developing a learner's autonomy and building bridges between educational institutions and the professional world. This book focuses on applying CLIL methodology within the context of ESP classes, highlighting the possible benefits that might be applicable in any higher educational institution.
