Review of Autonomous Language Learning with Technology: Beyond the Classroom

Ali Dincer

Abstract


Autonomy beyond the classroom is a promising topic of interest for educators and will have its heyday in the years to come with the proliferation of information and communication technologies in the era of digital language learning and teaching. Chun Lai, with her timely book, Autonomous Language Learning with Technology: Beyond the Classroom, makes a clear contribution to this less-charted terrain with reference to K-12 schools and universities. She provides readers with an overview of the phenomenon in a book with three sections and a total of nine chapters.
