On a more technical level, TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) is the term applied to the teaching of English to non-native speakers in native English speaking countries

so those who will earn degrees and work domestically in the field in the UK, Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, and South Africa and US will typically use the term “TESOL.”Your TEFL journey starts here!
In practical terms, when these terms are applied to the field of teaching English abroad, there is little or no difference between “TEFL” and “TESOL.” They are both acronyms that essentially mean the same thing
The accredited 120 hour TEFL course will give you all the skills & confidence you need to start your TEFL career.

The 120-Hour Educator TEFL/TESOL Certification course offers an affordable, accredited option for teachers seeking to acquire both a foundation in TEFL theory and practical teaching skills they can apply in the classroom.


This self-study course meets TEFL requirements for some entry-level teaching jobs, and prepares teachers to design effective lesson plans for teaching reading, writing, listening, and speaking. This core certification can easily be upgraded later!
