Autonomy is a key factor in almost every field. Everyone desires to do their work with certain liberty and everyone has the right to make their choices in the process of completing their task. Autonomy has first appeared in the field of foreign language teaching and it has been utilized by the learners of foreign countries for decades. The notion of autonomy has become popular and it has become an inevitable feature in the field of education since it encourages the learners to motivate themselves in initiating and framing their goals. Autonomy intrinsically implies freedom of choice. But this freedom of choice is hampered in a teacher centered learning environment. The teacher centered learning is considered as an outmoded approach and the environment that nurtures such a kind of learning method is undoubtedly a hindrance in the acquisition of communication skills. This paper throws limelight on the importance of autonomy for teachers as well as learners, the difficulties in implementing this method, the practical benefits of practising and nurturing autonomy and the methods of practising autonomy to reach the desired goal.
