Autonomous learning has become a hot topic in foreign language teaching and research. The newly issued curriculum standards in China also regard the cultivation of students’ autonomous learning ability as the goal of course teaching. The cultivation of autonomous learning ability is greatly promoted in China. In this thesis, the author analyzes the necessity and feasibility of high school students' autonomous learning ability in English. It is hoped that this study can cause middle school English teachers to attach importance to students' autonomous learning, and explore ways to cultivate students' autonomous learning ability in English.
