authentic individual growth in content and language progression. The meaning of literacy in the academia is often limited to the ability to use language proficiently or the quality of being knowledgeable in a particular subject or field. In this presentation a broader understanding of literacy will be presented which involves “a continuum of learning in enabling individuals to achieve their goals, to develop their knowledge and potential, and to participate fully in their community and wider society” (UNESCO, 2004). The main focus, therefore, will be placed on the use of academic language functions found in content journals written by students studying Applied Psychology at Jagiellonian University in Poland in order to display students’ change over time in their attitudes and beliefs about not only subjectspecific or language issues, but above all their lifelong learning. The aim of the presentation will be to show how students using content journals may challenge themselves to gain understanding, transform ideas or discover new meaning in their life as learners. Some implications for as well as caveats of using journals in CLIL in tertiary education will be presented. References Casanave, C. P. (2011). Journal Writing in Second Language Education.
