In this chapter we consider the roles that language(s) play(s) in mediating expectations and roles in critical friendship in self-study methodology. Drawing from our multi-year collaborative self-study on language teacher education, we consider examples from our critical friendship in light of theoretical frameworks providing by sociolinguistics on plurilingualism. In so doing, we draw from research not typically considered within the English-speaking academy to contribute to the conceptualisation of critical friendship within self-study methodology in general and language teacher education in particular.
