Learner autonomy and second/foreign language learning | Subject Centre for Languages, Linguistics and Area Studies Author: David Little © David Little Abstract This article defines the autonomous learner; summarises arguments in favour of helping language learners to become autonomous; briefly considers the process of 'autonomisation' in language classrooms and self-access learning schemes; identifies some principal lines of research; and concludes by suggesting that the Council of Europe's European Language Portfolio may bring 'autonomisation' to much larger numbers of learners than hitherto and in doing so may provide an important focus for research. Table of contents Definitions Learner autonomy is a problematic term because it is widely confused with self-instruction. Why learner autonomy? There are two general arguments in favour of trying to make learners autonomous. In the particular case of second and foreign languages there is a third argument. Helping language learners to become autonomous Research Current developments and future trends Bibliography Aoki, N. and R. Benson, P. (2001).
