Learner Autonomy with the learner-centered teaching philosophy in-depth development, has become the fundamental goal of foreign language education. English learners only to master learning strategies, learn how to learn, be active, independent, effective learning and to achieve the purpose of life-long learning. Vocational colleges students' English foundation is weak, the lack of awareness of learning strategies, self-learning ability, learning effect is not ideal. According to the theory of self-learning and learning strategies theory, learners' self-learning ability can be improved through guidance and training in appropriate conditions, the nature of strategy training is to develop self-learning ability. On the basis of this theory, we will blend of strategy training and English Teaching, is designed to train vocational students learning English autonomy, improve learning outcomes. In this study, Guangxi Agricultural Vocational and Technical College telecom professional two natural classes start two classes for the experimental group and the control group.
