This thesis deals with how Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is organized in a high school setting in Croatia. After the terminology is explained and European CLIL practices described, the paper will focus on CLIL in Croatia. A short description of different schools’ CLIL programs will be presented with an emphasis on XVI. gimnazija in Zagreb, where our research study was carried out. Then, research results will be presented based on data obtained by means of class observation, teacher interviews and student questionnaire. Such an approach to the topic was chosen to get a descriptive outline of CLIL in Croatia. In this way, it will be possible to get an idea of how CLIL functions in Croatia because no such studies have been carried out in the Croatian context so far. Also, we will see that CLIL is useful to Croatian learners and that developing CLIL practices will have an even greater effect on language learning in Croatia.
