    Short question

    This might have been asked before, but what's the actual difference between ESL and TEFL? If I Google "ESL jobs" or "TEFL jobs" I get different results, but are these types of jobs actually the same?

    Re: Short question

    There is no need to feel stupid - people in the business misuse them horribly. My favourites are:

    1. I got my TEFL last year. They didn't. They got their TEFL certificate.
    2. Is my TEFL as good as a CELTA? . See #1.
    3. I teach TEFL. They almost cetainly teach EFL.
    4. I prefer TEFL to TESOL. Yes, and they probably prefer courgettes to zucchini.

    Yeah right, a woman on Yahoo Answers was suggesting people to get their "ESL".
