The latest research in the field of language acquisition has proved extremely fruitful in giving interesting insights to foreign and second language teaching. Cognitive linguistics that focuses on the symbolic nature of grammatical constructions and their semantic and functional significance allows a type of instruction that is perfectly in line with the objectives and practices of communicative approaches to language teaching. The present contribution is aimed to address the relevant and basic tenets the of Usage-Based Grammar and the Construction Grammar as perspectives on language acquisition and teaching, and to shed light on the possible pedagogical implications within a CLIL context in which a language is used as a medium for learning content, and the content is used as a resource for learning a language.
