    Do you mean, which is better academically?

    The F in EFL stands for foreign, whereas the S in ESL stands for second. People who teach ESL generally teach in an English speaking country. People who teach EFL generally teach in a non-English speaking country.

    For example, a language company like, say, Berlitz which has offices all over the world--this is not an ad--offers both ESL and EFL courses. People studying English to survive in life take ESL courses. People studying for travel, fun, business, etc take EFL courses.

    Does that help?

    EFL would probably be a better choice as it would focus on the language that you would need for work, travel, etc, not the language that people living in an English-speaking country need.
