This paper reports on an investigation into two language learners' beliefs about roles and responsibilities for managing the learning process in a program which has as one of its stated goals the development of life-long, autonomous learners. The beliefs expressed by the learners indicate they simultaneously exhibit characteristics consistent with and in contradiction to the profile of self-directed, autonomous learners.
