TESOL (Teaching English as a Second Language) and TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) are interchangeable terms. Different schools use different terms, but there is no difference between “TEFL Training Courses” and “TESOL Training Courses”.

In the past, it was often much easier for untrained native speakers to find work teaching English in foreign countries. Today, however, a TEFL or TESOL Certificate is a minimum requirement for many English teaching jobs overseas. A TEFL or TESOL Certificate is obtained by taking a specialized TEFL-TESOL Training course that covers English teaching techniques and methodologies. While it may still be possible to obtain work in certain countries and in certain schools without training, you will be at a considerable disadvantage if you decide not to take a TEFL-TESOL Training Course.
