Part 1 of English as a Medium of Learning in Schools
addresses key approaches and terminology related to
teaching and learning subjects through English in primary

benefits and some challenges that teachers and learners
face in EML contexts. Benefits include the development
of teacher and learner language; active and interactive
subject teaching and learning; effective thinking in both
content and language, and subject resources that widen
cultural perspectives. Challenges focus on the language
demands of subject content, knowledge of subject
content and rethinking how to teach subjects in EML
