What is the difference between TEFL, TESL and TESOL?
TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. The term TEFL is mostly used when English is being taught in a country where it isn't the native language(e.g. teaching English to Chinese people in China). TESL is similar to TEFL and stands for Teaching English as a Second Language. This is where English is being taught to non-native speakers of English in a country where it is the native language (e.g. teaching non-native emigrants in the UK/USA). Finally, TESOL stands for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and encompasses both TESL & TEFL. The principles behind TEFL/TESOL are the same, and the training programs are special courses designed for teachers who want to teach English to non-native speakers of English.
I don't have any teaching experience or a degree, can I still take the course?
Of course, our online course does not require you to have any experience or a degree. However, many online teaching jobs may require that you hold a Bachelor's degree.
