What is the Difference Between TESL, TESOL, TEFL?
All of these are essentially the same:

* TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language):  
This term refers to teaching English in countries such as Canada, the US, Australia, etc., where English is the common everyday language in the community.

* TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language):  
This term to teaching English in countries such as Korea, Spain, Brazil, etc., where English is not the common everyday language in the community.

* TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages):  

This is a newer, umbrella term that encompasses both English and non-English speaking countries.
