TEFL/TESOL - THE DIFFERENCE
Q.
I am wondering if you could explain the differences between your TEFL and a TESOL, what are the benefits of the TEFL, or are they the same thing?

A.
TEFL = Teaching English as a Foreign Language. TESOL = Teaching English as a second or other language. Essentially TEFL implies/implied the ability to teach complete beginners, i.e. those to whom the language is completely foreign, as well as other levels. TESOL implies/implied that the learners will have had some previous exposure to English and will not be 'complete beginners'. However, the terms are often used interchangeably now and some opt never to use the term TEFL because they deem the use of the word 'foreign' to be anglo-centric. However, that was never the original intention.
