    EFL is English as a Foreign Language. It is meant for student living in their home country. ESL is English as a Second Language. It is for students who may or may not be living in an English speaking country. There really isn't too much of a difference in teaching between the two, but ESL in an English speaking country means that the students are exposed to more situations where they would use English. EFL students would likely have no situational English practice outside the classroom.

    I agree with Chris. EFL has the challenge of your students not having any added exposure to English.

  • WHEN YOU LEARN ENGLISH IN AN ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRY YOU ARE IN AN ESL SITUATION, BUT WHEN YOU LEARN IT IN A NON- ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRY IT IS CALLED EFL

    The second one is more modern and PC.
