Abstract
How to motivate and cultivate learners toward independent and autonomous learning becomes the focus of the present teaching, foreign language teachers have been witnessed to play a great important role in facilitating or fostering learner autonomy. This essay aims to do what little one can do by exploring teachers’ roles in developing learner autonomy and strategies that teachers should involve in the process of autonomous learning so as to foster learners’ autonomy. The author suggests that teachers should give students specific training in learner autonomy on the basis of needs analysis, facilitate them to keep on learning in the whole process of autonomous learning, and develop suitable materials which are catering to students’ autonomous learning. Teachers also need to pay special attention to continuous self-development so as to become an expert as well as a friend to learners.
