Emotion is one of the key elements influencing language learning, but the phenomenon of emotional deficiency has arisen with the widespread application of web-based autonomous learning platforms. This paper, based on the author’s own teaching experiences and some other studies, discusses the importance of emotional factors to language learning, explores the main causes of emotional deficiency in autonomous learning in web-based environment and offers some suggested solutions as to how to ensure students’ subjective status in autonomous learning and how to improve their performance.
