TEFL vs TESL vs TESOL...what’s the difference?

The terms TEFL, TESL and TESOL refer to similar, but distinct, ESL teaching qualifications. For more information on these commonly used acronyms please visit our post on the differences between TEFL, TESL and TESOL.

*Teach Away considers a 100-hour TEFL course to be the minimum requirement for teaching jobs which require a TEFL certification. While there is no international standard, most international schools will only accept TEFL courses with a minimum of 100 hours of course work.
