    Default TESL

    Hello, teachers:
    Is it idiomatic and right to say " He is a TESL teacher." if he teaches people who live in an English- speaking country, but whose first language is not English.

    Thanks for your confirmation.

    Yes, though "an ESL teacher" is better because the "T" stands for "teacher/teaching".
