Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

Abstract: With the notion of "learner autonomy" proposed and the mate textbooks published, the "learner-centered approach" has been widely adopted in colleges and universities in China. Nevertheless, it is obviously inadequate to have only the theory and materials for students to achieve ideal learning results. Learning context is also vital for learner autonomy. This article first analyzes the disavantageous factors involving learning context, and then gives some suggestions on how to create learning context for learner autonomy.
