TESOL > Teaching English To Speakers Of Other Languages

Wondering what the meaning of TESOL is? TESOL stands for Teaching English to Speakers Of Other Languages.

The teaching profession has in the past used different terms for TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language). However, the more generic term Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is increasingly used to describe the profession; as an umbrella term it covers both TESL and TEFL.

Similar acronyms are TESL (Teaching English As A Second Language) and TEFL (Teaching English As A Foreign Language).
