For many, even among providers of teaching qualifications, TEFL and TESOL are the same things, but this is not the case.

TEFL is when you teach English in non-English speaking countries, while TESOL is when you teach English in UK, USA and English speaking countries, and the difference in the approach to the language is huge: one is about learning English, the other one is out of necessity

I talked about the differences between TEFL and TESOL with English Teacher and Writer Amy Gowers, who recently shifted from EFL to ESOL.

In this interview, Amy shares with us some of her experience and challenges in working with immigrants and refugees.

If you are interested in working with refugees and people escaping war, we have an opportunity in partnership with the charity Refuaid, to get sponsored to study with us.
