The present study investigates the hidden beliefs of BA students of three main language fields in Iran. Employing quantitative metaphor analysis, the conceptions of 300 students of English, French and Arabic were detected on the basis of the three main paradigms in education, namely Behaviorism, Cognitivism, and Situative learning and teaching. The results indicate that the three groups hold the similar beliefs towards the current university education system and share the similar ideals in this respect. The role of culture in education is discussed in light of the results. The findings are also compared with previous studies that have drawn on metaphor analysis in the Iranian context of foreign language education.
