The aim of the current thesis is to find out what are the Estonian ninth grade students’ beliefs about learning English in and outside the classroom. This thesis is influenced by similar research conducted by Alastair Henry and Christina Cliffordson in Sweden in 2017. Their research shows that there are many factors that affect how actively students engage in learning in formal situations. English in the context of Estonia and Sweden are somewhat similar and students tend to spend a lot of their free time doing English-mediated activities outside classroom. This trend indicates that looking at students’ use of English outside the classroom is a potential research area also in the context of Estonia.
