Objective: The impact of learning English on self-esteem and stuttering pattern of different kinds both in the mother tongue and the second language.
Method: The population included all stuttering people ranging from 12 to 23 who came to speech therapy centers in Isfahan. As a sample, then, 15 were chosen randomly. The research method was quasi-experimental and the research design was a single-group with pre-test and post-test. Prior to the study, the subjects were tested in terms of patterns and kinds of stuttering with SSI3 test with Howell, et al., and self-esteem test based on Cooper and Smith Scale.
Result: In comparing stuttering pattern, second language learning effect on stalling and non-stalling stuttering in the second language was significant as compared with the first language, but it was not significant in the second language as compared with the first language. Also, it was significant in increasing self-esteem.
Conclusion: After second language learning, stuttering pattern in the mother tongue is the same as other stutterering, while stuttering pattern in the second language is the same as for children. Also, there was an increase in self-esteem during learning English.
