Description The framework of our course English Autonomously is very similar to ALMS that was developed at the University of Helsinki. Students´ duties include two introductory sessions, three individual counsellings, learning journal writing and a selection of modules compiled according to their needs. These components affect different language skills but also other areas of student´s life. The questionnaire, which is a part of an extensive feedback form that closes the course, enables us to collect data that demonstrate where the students see their progress and how they achieved it. The findings show us the importance of individual counsellings which are valued by majority of students. This quantitative insight helps us not only to understand and improve the course but also to realize what effect the course has on the students.
