I am interested in Teaching English as a Foreign Language otherwise known as TEFL. I have studied a TESOL course (Teaching English as a Second Language).

The difference in the two abbreviations reveals some of the sensitivity around teaching English. One stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language, and the other for Teaching English as a Second Language. A lot of learners are in English speaking countries and they are learning English as a second language.
