This chapter reports on a study involving Taiwanese undergraduates majoring in English who acted as peer tutors to non-English-major undergraduate students who had scored low marks in English in their university entrance examination. The chapter suggests that, as a result of their peer teaching experience, the tutors developed greater learner autonomy in a number of ways, including feeling a greater responsibility for their own learning, being more confident and more critical about their learning, and learning in a more collaborative fashion.

Keywords:   peer teaching, learner autonomy, collaboration, interaction, confidence, self-esteem, motivation
