Autonomy in Language Learning and Teaching

Anamika Shukla


There is a human need to continuously innovate and use language to construct new meaning to propagate human evolution. Language grows over time to deal with complexities and also undergoes changes in accordance with the needs of the language users. Thus new/complex language is innovated to handle and communicate new meaning. Language learning with the idea of learner’s autonomy is employed primarily to express ‘known meaning’ rather than to construct ‘unknown meaning’. The purpose is to facilitate the learning task into a creative task. The use of multicultural experiences and constraints facilitate creativity thereby laying emphasis on the autonomy of learner being a major psychology phenomenon. Autonomy is thus a multifaceted concept.
