Learner Autonomy Across Cultures
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


What does "autonomy" mean within language learning? Should it be enhanced within national, institutional or small group culture and, if so, how can that be done? A variety of theoretical perspectives are here firmly anchored in research data from projects worldwide. By foregrounding cultural issues and thus explicitly addressing the concerns of many educators on the appropriateness and feasibility of developing learner autonomy in practice, this book offers practical benefits to language teachers.
