Professional Texts in Vehicular Language Education in CLIL Context Dual-Language Education at Secondary School Level University of Belgrade The success of dual-language education is explained by the fact that the target language is used for communication goals and not only as the subject of learning (Swain & Lapkin, 1982). As language and content represent simultaneously the subject of education, this double goal requires a special teaching approach. Therefore, it is necessary to point out that CLIL method implies only integrated approach (Eurydice, 2006: 8). It is useful to predict mutual goals for foreign language and content when planning CLIL education (Coyle, et al, 2010). Therefore, the language is analyzed from the three different angles: the language of learning (necessary for acquisition of basic concepts and skills regarding the content), the language for learning (language type that should be used in context of foreign language) and the language through learning (active language of using and thinking). A dual program that implies using of Serbian and Italian language in content education has been implemented in Serbian secondary schools (Vuco, 2006: 51). The research contains analysis of testing results of understanding by reading texts in the field of history and history of art within the foreign language education. The work contains guidelines for usage of professional texts within the foreign language education, with special review regarding the development of reading strategies, as well as acquisition of lexica and grammar.
