The intent of the present study is to investigate the relationship between language learning strategies and learned helplessness. For this purpose, a questionnaire was administered to 371 secondary school students (first, second and third-graders) learning English in the Kuyavian-Pomeranian Voivodeship. The results of this study showed there was a moderate, negative significant relationship between indirect strategies and learned helplessness and a slightly weaker, but still moderate, significant relationship between direct strategies and learned helplessness.
