In another word, corpus plays a momentous role in language teaching. Cultivating student’s autonomous learning ability is an important part of teaching objectives. Many researchers at home and abroad have done researches in how to improve the students’ autonomous learning ability and have established some models, while corpus-based model to improve learner autonomy is seldom seen, so the paper tries to prove the feasibility of the model theoretically, also mentions the premise and the contents. Based on this paper, many original and feasible researches are expected.
