What's the difference between TESOL and TEFL?

TESOL: English for other languages

TEFL: English as a Foreign Language Teaching

TESL: Teaching English as a Second Language

ESL: English as a Second Language

ELT: English Language Teaching

ESOL: English in other languages

Certificates with any of the above abbreviations will be recognized for use in teaching English as a second language internationally.

Importantly, any course you undertake to teach English as a second language is 120 hours plus, which includes methods, curriculum planning, grammar, classroom management, communication and many other modules.

In addition, overseas schools and universities are looking for teachers who have completed face-to-face training (in-class or online "live") and teaching practice with actual international students in TESOL/TEFL courses.
