English as a second language (ESL) is learned through-out our entire universe. Each student(s) may be effected in a different way in their course of learning. I interviewed an educator by the name of Salvatore Di Giallonardo, who is the creator, director, and a teacher for Languages for Communications school in Pescara, Italy. I was able to skype him several times during this process to gain as much knowledge on the effects teaching English to students who spoke a different language. During the interview, I explored with these questions: What do the students do when they make an error in pronunciation? What method does the school use to teach ESL to their students and what are your thoughts on this method? How important do you think immersion is and how do you see non-English speaking students interact with English speaking students? The students that are competent in English, what skills and habits did they adopt? Through this interview I was able to analyze Salvatore’s answers to both teaching ESL in a school in America and teaching ELS in a school abroad as to how students are effected in a psychological manner. The conclusion was not what I originally thought the outcome would be but it was very interesting as well as informative.
