part for them to improve is English writing skills. One of the 10 
Korean students, Linda, said,
“Accidently, the native English speaker looked over my English 
essay, and she said to me that my essay had many grammatical 
errors. Moreover, some of the sentences did not make sense at 
all. After I heard these comments, I realized that English writing is 
not easy.” Another student, Daniel, discovered that it was very 
difficult for him to precisely choose a word, idiom, and phrase 
depending on each situation while he wrote an essay.
Because of the lack of English vocabulary, he felt that he could not 
write a good essay.
Furthermore, Betty mentioned that she generally started writing 
the essay in Korean first before she wrote the essay in English, so 
sometimes it was very difficult for her to write the English essay 
because of translating the words from Korean English.Eleven out 

of 30 Korean students said that it was the third most difficult for 
them to learn English listening skills 
Data Analysis 
Through the interview process, the researcher found 30 Korean 
students’ answers for 16 interview questions. The 16 interview 
questions were individually answered by 30 Korean students.
After examining the Korean students’ answers for the interview
questions, the researcher found a particular commonality for each 
question and 37summarized the Korean students’ answers of the 
interview questions in the section of Chapter Four . Reviewing the 
answers of the interview questions, the researcher discovered the 
answers of the six research questions. 
Chapter Four 
Analysis and Results
