EMI comes with assumptions of increased language proficiency. But what is this incidental language proficiency increase really like if you are in an EMI-context in an EFL-country where English is not the everyday context? And does the incidental language learning obtained in English-speaking contexts even promote learning? Or is it the mobility we are mainly after as it were? At Chalmers university of technology, we have been involved in a three-year project to study incidental language proficiency improvement in EMI-programmes. I will try to report back on these programme students’ development and compare the EMI-approach to our integrated approach in order to discuss some of the challenges of both approaches.
