Description Autonomous learning offers a different attitude to both, learning and teaching. Learners have the right and duty to plan their learning according to their needs and requirements and teachers have the opportunity to help and tailor sessions according to the students. Metacognition plays a very important role in autonomous learning and the students not only make progress in their language competencies but also in metacognitive skills and personal development. A major change happens in the field of motivation, which is reflected in students´ learning diaries and in individual counselling sessions. The course English Autonomously illustrates how autonomous learning can work in practice.
