      This paper aims at discussing how internet-Based Self Access (iBSA) could develop students’ language skills based on Indonesian context. Internet-Based Self Access is a kind of supporting facility that promotes autonomy learning. Students with different needs of language skills or components could use iBSA, so they likely feel it really useful. Since the major goal of using iBSA is to promote and keep autonomy learning in which students learn by themselves freely without the assistance of teachers, there are at least three benefits students could have 1) to get access to a variety of additional materials, 2) to do self evaluation in which they could recognize their progress by doing language exercises in the internet, 3) to enjoy learning atmosphere in which they can do self access either indoor or outdoor freely without time constraints. Viewed from the teachers’ job, iBSA can help them reduce their workload such as preparing supplementary materials, having more time for individual consultation, and so on. In the implementation of iBSA, it is necessary that the institution should facilitate all necessary requirements of internet for both indoor and outdoor access such as bandwidth, space with power supply, computer accessories, and other infrastructures
