In countries where English is not the main language and is not a lingua franca, TEFL refers to Teaching English as a Foreign Language: services. TESOL, which stands for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, is a general name for the teaching field which includes TEFL.
TEFL: Teaching English as a Foreign Language.
TEFL programmes are designed for teachers who wish to teach students in a country where the main language is not English. Students in those countries learn English as a foreign language, and as an academic subject. The basic emphasis is on helping students to understand grammar, vocabulary, reading, listening comprehension, and academic speaking. Students may practice short speeches or perform skits, but in general, the aim of speaking exercises is to concentrate on using grammar and pronunciation correctly.
For students who study English as a foreign language, academic language is important, because students are required to be able to read texts, write essays and pass English exams for university placement. These acquired skills help them prepare for the TOEFL or the IELTS, also a form of standardized exam that foreign students take before they enroll in a university where the medium of instruction is English.
TESOL: Teaching English to Speakers of Other Language
For teachers who wish to work with non-native English speakers living in a country where English is the medium of communication, training in TESOL methodology is highly recommended. Teachers help students to use English as a language for their daily interaction. It covers vast daily life scenarios including shopping, buying food at a restaurant, applying for a job, making casual contact with colleagues and other routine types.
