The present paper aims to investigate in which way the academics from the intensive course of languages major in English at Universidade Federal do Pará in Bragança city, apprehend autonomous practice.  It will have as a main focus the periods when the students are not present in classrooms for a better appropriation of the oral skill, because they have difficulties to express themselves when they come back to the class period at university.  The research methodology is a study case through semi-structures interview based on the theories of Autonomy by Little (1997) and  Dickinson(1992), and Motivation by Ushioda (1996) and  Dörnyei (2005).
