Abstract: This paper reports on a large-scale study on learner autonomy conducted with a group of tertiary students at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in Hong Kong. The study investigates students' views of their responsibilities and decision-making abilities in learning English, their motivation level and the actual language learning activities they undertook inside and outside the classroom with a view to gauging their readiness for autonomous learning. The paper presents the student profile generated from the study and concludes with the pedagogical implications of the findings for the implementation of learner autonomy at tertiary level in Hong Kong.
