This chapter discusses the impact of a Sociolinguistics module on motivation at a four-year initial English language teacher education (IELTE) programme in Esquel, a city in southern Argentina. In analysing the module, we concentrated on the interplay between two psychological constructs, motivation and self-confidence and content and language integrated learning (CLIL) as a teaching approach.
