This paper presents the design of a 9-hour project on teaching Science through Greek as a second language. The scope of this intervention is twofold: (a) to help foreign students in developing language proficiency and scientific argumentation skills, and (b) to familiarize them with the academic register so that they can express efficiently their knowledge on scientific concepts, processes and functions. The theoretical background combines the principles of Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) and Strategy-based Learning. Moreover, the guidelines of the New Curricula for both Physics and Modern Greek are taken into consideration. The teaching material includes written and oral texts, appropriate for developing scientific and linguistic literacy, so that students can effectively manage difficult scientific concepts, academic vocabulary and complex structures.
