dc.description.abstract Since the CLIL programs were implemented in Kazakhstani mainstream schools and more and more students are engaged into foreign language acquisition through subject content learning, it becomes crucial to cater to the diversity of learners.

The purpose of this paper is to build a better understanding of what kind of pedagogical support is required in order to provide Kazakhstani students with appropriate and effective instruction in diverse CLIL classrooms. The study focuses on Kazakhstani teachers’ practices and experiences in teaching CLIL programs in inclusive settings. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 10 CLIL teachers from different schools in Kazakhstan.
