Abstract

The role of self-instruction has become an issue in higher, further and secondary education. As international exchanges have been increasing, both in the sectors of industry and education, this type of approach to language teaching has developed. Students from a wide variety of backgrounds are now learning languages for practical reasons, and institutions need to equip them with skills that they may require in this working environment. This text sets out to demonstrate through specific examples how learner training could be implemented in higher education as a formally assessed module, within the principle of learner autonomy. The purpose of the book is not to formulate general theoretical claims but to provide practical examples of how such a programme might be developed and adapted for use in a range of higher education teaching institutions.
