  • TESL stands for teaching the language as a Second language. This means teaching in countries where they already speak the language and they use it as an everyday language to communicate. Places like USA, Canada, Australia etc.
  • TESOLstands for teaching the language to Speakers of Other Languages. This has now morphed into an association called TESOL International Association with over 12,000 members world wide.
