Common Questions About TEFL/TESOL Certification:

What is the difference between TEFL and TESOL?

If you are a citizen of US, and interested in teaching the language to citizens of other countries, it may become difficult to choose one of the two tests.

• TESOL is more common in the US while TEFL is popular in Britain.

• TESOL refers to all learners whose first language is not English, and that includes minorities living in US, while TEFL refers only to foreign students.

• There is also a school of thought that says that TEFL is associated with teaching students in their home country, while TESOL is associated with teaching students who have settled in countries where English is the native language.

For those offering jobs on the basis of test results of TEFL and TESOL, there is virtually no difference between the two tests. Jobs that require TESOL as a qualification readily accept TEFL certification and make no difference between the two certifications.

TEFL -Teaching English as a Foreign Language
 (Teaching English as a Foreign Language)- This term applies to teaching English to people in countries where English is not the native language – it’s a foreign language. For example, this would be the case if you were living in Brazil, teaching English to Brazilian students.
(Teaching English as a Second Language) - This term applies to teaching English in countries where English is the native language. This would be the case if you were a teacher at an English language center in the U.S., teaching a group of students studying abroad from various countries. While you may not see the term TESL a lot, you will very commonly see ESL, such as “ESL students” to refer to English as second language learners.
TESL - Teaching English as a Second Language
ESL is a common abbreviation used in schools and it stands for "English as a Second Language." Schools will often use the term ESL when describing the programs that educate students who are not native English speakers and for describing the 'ESL students' themselves.
Prove your teaching knowledge with this series of flexible tests.

TKT is a series of modular teaching qualifications which test your knowledge in specific areas of English language teaching. It will help you to build your confidence, and is a cost-effective way to get an internationally recognized qualification. Whether you are a new teacher or have years of experience, TKT is ideal for people who need to prove their teaching knowledge with a globally recognized certificate.

(Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) - This catch-all term applies to both types of English language teaching – in a country where English is not the native language (EFL) or in a country where the first language is English (ESL). It is commonly used interchangeably with the term TEFL. For example, a school may ask if you’re TEFL/TESOL certified, and the answer for any Bridge course graduate is yes! The term TESOL is only significantly different from the term TEFL when it’s used by universities since a graduate degree in teaching English would be a Master’s in TESOL program (not a Master’s in TEFL).
