Now if you type BrE, AmE, ESL, TEFL, ESOL, etc, you see that there's a dotted underline and if you put the mouse over the word, you can see the phrase in full. Please make suggestion for other teaching/learning acronyms used commonly here.
BrE, AmE, EFL, TEFL, ESL, ESOL, TESL, TESOL & CELTA
(I used Speakers of Other Languages for ESOL/TESOL- I could add Second or Other Language, but it would make it huge. We do have to be careful because it's not case sensitive. Also, too many and it may become intrusive. I wasn't sure whether to include IMO, which I still use.)

Incidentally, are all the abbreviations listed above acronyms? Some of them look dubious.
IMO would be useful - I didn't know what it meant when I arrived.How about ELT and ESP?
fjj, I have added them.
balakrishnanjik, it doesn't actually say that they are all acronyms; it's asking for suggestions.

BTW, there are more defined here so you can look up others even if they are not included in this forum feature: Log In - UsingEnglish.com
I've added BTW but don't want to go overboard on that sort.
