Abstract

This chapter takes issue with the promise of CLIL as a pathway to a better future. It argues that schools’ hopeful orientations to make CLIL work resonate with three broader disciplinary inertias of knowledge production fuelled by this promise, namely embarking into unknown futures without looking back; finding the right pedagogical formula via detaching knowledge from the everyday making of institutional life; and delivering employability as a measure of personal development. Drawing on the notions of language policy as a discourse on language and society, ecological validity and employability as a technology of government, it offers avenues for further research.
