Study abroad contexts are assumed by foreign language learners to be the best environment for effective language learning. This article reports on beliefs of first year Polish students of German studies. The collected qualitative data show that Polish students do not differ from other learners with regard to their opinions on study abroad and its benefits (and disadvantages) for speaking German. The article underlines the need to reflect with learners about their beliefs, experiences, and expectations of language learning.
