Practice Firm

This is a lesson plan for teaching CLIL in a practice firm.

African Spirit – a practice firm of the commercial high school BHAK Perg – took part in a procedure for achieving the certificate “Qualitätsmarke ÜFA” – a certificate indicating the quality of work throughout the school year. The entire documentation was handed in to a jury.

The students have achieved many goals during the past months. But there are always chances for improvement, e.g. office organization.

Here are assignments for the next lessons:

  • Clear and tidy up folders – especially on the computer
  • Create a clear structure for each department, so everybody can find documents easily. Eliminate incomplete files and also documents that have become obsolete.
  • Write a report on the tasks you have carried out and completed successfully during the past months
  • Create a table of your achievements
  • State what you have learned. Which areas can be improved?
  • Collect information about the Management Model St. Gallen and prepare a presentation.
  • Additionally create a handout containing the most important facts of that model. How can the Management Model St. Gallen be applied to and implemented in our practice firm?
  • The first part of the presentation should include posters introducing the practice firm African Spirit

Doing this requires vocabulary and phrases concerning a company presentation.


  • The students may use graphs to visualize the development of the company. bar charts, pie charts
  • They created a catalogue for demonstration of products
  • They may present African Spirit’s mission statements.
