The aim of the study is to investigate beliefs students usually held about language learning, based on the Beliefs About Language Learning Inventory (BALLI) questionnaire (Horwitz, 1988) and comparing them with teachers. For this purpose, 423 Iranian learners of English were selected. Running descriptive statistics and the scree plot test, five factors were extracted: Formal Learning and Motivation for English Learning, Learner’s Confidence in Learning English, Strategy and Attitude in Learning English, Aptitude and Strategy in Learning English, and the Importance of English and Formal Learning. Evidence of the relative similarities and significant differences between teachers’ and learners’ beliefs about language learning on nine items was provided. The findings of the current study suggest that teachers should be aware of learners’ beliefs as well as their own in order to assist less successful language learners.
