Description The paper reported on an interdisciplinary language course for science students, based on three pedagogical approaches, namely collaborative learning, problem-based learning, and content and language integrated learning. Each of the approaches contributed enormously to the success of the course in that they encouraged and challenged the students to achieve higher learning goals such as developing their soft skills, improving their general academic and discipline-specific language and investigating an authentic scientific problem.
