  ESL & EFL... WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
"I am a recent college graduate with a degree in French language and literature, and I have decided to pursue a career in teaching ESL, and, potentially, EFL. I was wondering if you could answer a few questions. 1) What kind of certification do I need to teach ESL in the States, specifically in New York? 2) If I go through a certification program for EFL, does this certify me for ESL as well, and vice versa? 3) What are the advantages, if any, of obtaining a master's degree in education with a concentration in EFL? Will this look better on a resume? Will my salary be higher? Will this ensure me the same possibilities to teaching as a certification, or is certification necessary as well? 4) Is it truly possible to make a living out of teaching ESL? Thank you so much for your help. I welcome any advice you might have about certification/MA programs."

Age limit for job applications?
Q.
Before going ahead and filling in my resume and getting high hopes, I would like to know is there an age limit for job applications? I was born in 1948. I wonder if age is a factor which would preclude me for being selected for a job?

A.
It's impossible to give a clear cut answer. In some countries it is legal for employers to specify age limits, when employing staff. In other countries, there is strict legislation against age discrimination with regards to employment. Some countries also impose an age limit due to work visa requirements.
