dc.description.abstract The main objective of this study is to explore to what extent Self-Access Center (SAC) use promotes autonomous language learning. To achieve this objective, Level-2 and Level-3 Peacekeeping English project students of Addis Ababa and Harrar Self- Access Centers were chosen as participants of the study. For the purpose of gathering sufficient and reliable data, three instruments were used. The questionnaire was used to assess students feeling about the SAC, the materials they used to improve their language skills, self-assessment, language learning strategies and how the SAC was helping them. The interviews were used to get a detail overview of the information gathered through the questionnaire. And the observation was also used as a supplementary tool for the data gathered through the questionnaire and interview. Then, the data were analyzed both quantitatively and qualitatively. The findings show that students were good in making self-assessment, deciding their language learning process and independent use of material. However, students had problems on setting their language learning goals, discussing on their own language learning strategies and use of learners note book (SAC Log book). Students had also lack of information on the available resources in the SAC, this can be seen when most students focused on one skill. In addition, most students' autonomy was limited to listening skills. Finally recommendations are given in order to help teachers and administrative staffs to help their students to autonomous language learning. en_US
