This paper aims to identify different characteristics of content and language integrated learning (CLIL) teacher language and how AI and, more particularly, ChatGPT can support the language needed for use in CLIL teaching. The paper examines and analyses key writings in CLIL in order to identify the components of CLIL teacher language.  The specification of the components of this language allows for specific language needs to be identified and has implications for the implementation of CLIL in terms of teacher training, teaching materials and other forms of teacher support. Subsequently, the authors propose how these types of CLIL teacher language can be supported through the use of AI.
