The last two decades have witnessed a huge growth in the number of English-language academic programmes that are aimed at attracting foreign students to European universities. As a result, there appeared a necessity to implement an educational technology providing successful communication and academic results. Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) is an educational technology that provides an opportunity for successful acquisition of both content and language. The paper describes the way Master students of Kazan Federal University evaluated professor's ability to use content and language integrating strategies in teaching CLIL study course. The content and language integrating strategies include: using cognitively demanding authentic materials including videos, flash, web-quests, podcasts from English resources; active scaffolding aimed at reducing cognitive and linguistic load; intensive interaction and productive foreign language usage; integrating cultural component into content; developing higher order thinking skills when learning a foreign language. The article defines a number of challenges when implementing CLIL study course that require further research.
