The results were as follows: (1) English salon is effective in improving college students' English proficiency especially English listening and speaking; (2) English salon helps college students develop other ability and skills such as problem solving skills, leadership skills and management skills. Even though there exist some potential problems and disadvantages, measures will be taken to improve English salon in order to benefit more students.
