Approaches to language autonomy in language learning

Autonomy in language learning

The main idea behind learner autonomy is that learners should be able to take charge of their own learning. Being dependent on the teacher wouldn’t help the learning process. Students should be encouraged to construct knowledge from direct experience through hypothesizing, experimenting, acquiring, transforming and transferring learning. Ideal autonomous learners are people who:

  • are willing to take risks,
  • have insights into their learning styles and strategies,
  • and are willing to revise and reject hypotheses.
