The origin of this book lies in a major conference entitled “Autonomy and Language Learning: Maintaining control” held in Hong Kong and Hangzhou in June 2004. That conference was the younger sibling of another important conference held 10 years earlier, also in Hong Kong and mainland China, which formed the basis of the book Taking Control: Autonomy in language learning. The chapters of this book are organized into three main parts. The first part provides the theoretical foundation for the rest of the book, looking at current conceptualisations of autonomy from a critical and sociocultural perspective. The two other parts deal largely with developing learner autonomy and teacher autonomy.

Keywords:   learner autonomy, language learning, China, teacher autonomy, Hong Kong
