“Few teachers will disagree with the importance of helping language learners to become more autonomous as learners” (A. Wenden 1991).

But what is learner autonomy? How can we develop it in the linguistic field? How can we help learners to be responsible for their learning, to take decisions, to develop language and self-awareness day by day? The conference will give some answers and issues in research.

The Conference is open to researchers, teachers, policy makers and language specialists with an interest in learner autonomy, foreign language learning and plurilingual competence development.

This one-day event is organized by the Department of Linguistics and Comparative Cultural Studies of Ca’ Foscari University of Venice (Italy) in cooperation with LASIG (Learner Autonomy Special Interest Group) within Iatefl (International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language).
