Which course is right for you: TEFL vs TESL vs TESOL?

Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. This term is used for both the TEFL and TESL situations, where the mother tongue of students is not English.
TEFL – Teaching English as a Foreign Language
A TEFL certification provides the skills needed to teach English abroad in countries where students do not speak English as their first language, such as China, Japan or Brazil. While a 100-hour TEFL certificate is the minimum requirement set by many hiring bodies abroad, it is important to note that at least 120 hours of TEFL training is the commonly expected standard for the highest salary teaching jobs around the world.
TESL – Teaching English as a Second Language
TESL is a qualification for teaching students whose first language is not English, but are currently living in a native-English speaking country. For example, teaching temporary students, workers, or recent immigrants to countries such as the USA, UK, Australia and Canada. A TESL would be suitable for jobs in these countries such as a language support teacher for school students whose first language is not English.
TESL courses are most relevant for those looking to teach English within their home country. TESL is also a highly respected ESL qualification in Canada.
TESOL – Teaching English to Speakers of another Language
This qualification is newer and gives a lot more flexibility as to whether you teach English overseas or in a native-English speaking country. In fact, TESOL courses cover a broader range of topics. TESOL courses are the best option when you want to encapsulate both TESL and TEFL and having a state university diploma like ours will enable you to work anywhere you want, whether you have decided to stay in your home country or go overseas and explore the world.

What is the difference between TESOL onsite and Online?

TESOL onsite is a classroom-based course and part self-study, whereas TESOL Online is purely self-study:
Onsite= 200 hours class time (including 6+ hours of teaching practice and class observation) with a qualified teacher trainer.
