Abstract

Although CLIL was intended to be for all, reality shows that this is not always the case. This means that benefits from CLIL programs risk being only available for a “limited” few. While this should be solved on different (policy) levels, it is worth investigating how these benefits from CLIL can be made available to other programmes with a wider scope and target population by using the same teaching materials. It has been stated before that CLIL uses best practices in education, meaning that its classroom principles are not limited to CLIL alone. In this chapter, the Fractio Quest app will be analysed to see what kind of teaching programs can benefit from these materials. The analysis shows that the way in which language learning is supported via this app can be used in contexts where newcomers are involved.
