This chapter compares and contrasts the beliefs about two languages, Swedish as an L1 and English as an L2, held by two content-and-language-integrated-learning (CLIL) students (aged 17–18 years) with those of two other students. They were all attending Grade 12 in the Swedish educational system. The students were asked to take photographs of occasions that were significant to them when they used the two languages and provide interpretations in follow-up discussions. The findings indicate that CLIL and non-CLIL students differ in their perspectives on language: while CLIL students tend to view language as something to be used, non-CLIL students rather look at it as something to be learned.
