(Language Teaching Methodology) This work aims to encourage teachers to identify and develop their students' capacity for becoming autonomous learners. It outlines procedures for diagnosing language learners' ability as self-sufficient learners and gives guidelines for using tasks and classroom contexts to encourage such learning/5(6).

Developing learner independence has an important role in the theory and practice of language teaching. Language learning is a lifelong endeavour, not one that begins and ends in a language class room.

Learner autonomy refers to the principle that learners should take a maximum amount of responsibility for what they learn and how they learn it.

They should be involved in decisions concerning setting objectives for learning, determining ways and means of learning, and reflecting on and evaluating what they have learned.

Moreover, autonomy also improves students' responsibility for their own learning and. Whereas in previous decades autonomous, self-directed or 'independent' learning may have been assumed to be an alternative to classroom learning, the emphasis has now shifted to the point where learner autonomy, viewed as capacity to take charge of one’s own learning, is increasingly being promoted as a goal for general language education.

In the view of cultural-historical psychology, the development of a students learning skills is never entirely separable from the content of their learning, seeing as learning a new language is quite different to learning any.
