Learner autonomy has been considered as a crucial affective variable in language learning. It is important for language learners to be responsible for their own learning. Recently, learners are placed at the core of language learning process. Within this context of education, learner autonomy enables learners to take active role in their own learning process. When learners take control over their learning, they develop an ability to determine their goals and objectives. Moreover, they can independently set goals, and direct their learning. Autonomy in the context of language acquisition refers to an ability to act independently and communicate in the target language in real situations. This paper endeavors to present the characteristics of autonomous learners and sets forth the relationship between autonomy and language learning.
