content-based learning

Content Based Learning Content-based learning or teaching is a learning approach that is particularly important in language teaching. The core idea is that students learn a language by learning about other subjects (i.e. content). In this way, the needs of learners can be better met and it is believed that the use of authentic material increases the motivation of language students.
