Learner Autonomy as an Element in Chinese Education Reform: A Case of English Language Subject
Lu, Jinjin; Liu, Yingliang
English Language Teaching, v9 n3 p33-48 2016
Enhancing students' learning autonomy has been emphasized in the current round of English curriculum reforms by the Ministry of Education (MOE) in China. The initial aim of the new guidelines was developed to enhance students' English proficiency to better fulfil their basic education (Nine-year compulsory education). However, up until now, very little is known about the quality of students' basic education and their learner autonomy development. This paper uses the English language subject as a case to examine the relationship between the different locations of students' attendance of their basic education and their learner autonomy development at university level. The result shows that secondary schools' locations play a more important role in students' learner autonomy development at university. A "Have A Go" model is proposed to improve students' transition between high schools and universities in the English language learning process.
