The present study is aimed at creating a holistic fractal model (HFM) of autonomous learning for English acquisition in a blended environment of e-studies in adult non-formal education on the basis of the theories and paradigms of philosophy, psychology and education for sustainable development to promote the development of adult learners' experiences of English acquisition. Thus, the present research attempts to find out how autonomous learning influences transformation of the system of values and integration in the learning environment. The research is based on the holistic paradigm of science. Adults' English learning experience, their readiness to learn the language in blended e-studies and the SWOT analysis of metacognitive strategies are investigated in the paper. The authors also put forward recommendations for facilitating the transformation of the system of values in the process of autonomous learning for English acquisition in blended e-studies. The research has resulted in the HFM that interprets the systemic view on the transformation of values in the environment in the classroom and virtual environment, shows more holistic comprehension of the deepness and structure of the complexity of language learning and makes a methodological basis for its holistic facilitation in blended e-studies for adults.
