This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Teaching esl and efl are essentially the same job-teaching english to students who need to learn it as their second or third, fourth language. However, there are distinctions between the two. The main differences between efl and esl are first, the students who are being taught, and second, the location where english is being taught to speakers of other languages. english as a Second Language (esl) teaching refers to teaching english in a country where english is already the main or official language. The united states,
canada and australia are the major locations to teach esl. english as a Foreign Language (efl) is teaching english in countries where english in not a language of majority. South Korea, japan, china and Taiwan are the efl countries. esl students may vary widely in their first-language literacy skills. Some esl learners had very little schooling in their first languages. Others have lived and worked in english
speaking countries for many years and have well-developed language skills. Beyond the need for "survival english," many of these esl students will continue their education in community colleges, colleges or universities and need academic esl classes on how write research papers or give presentations. efl students study english in their own country, as part of academic requirements in their school systems, or in preparation for travel or study in an english-speaking country. efl students have years of grammar and vocabulary practice, but often need help with their listening, speaking and writing (the production skills). teachers are needed at all grade levels in public schools, in colleges and universities, and in private language institutes. There are also
opportunities to work in the corporate setting teaching business efl to workers who will travel to english-speaking countries or serve english-speaking customers. In an efl setting, intrinsic motivation can be low, and english may not seem relevant to the students since it is not part of their daily lives. In many cases, they may be required to study english for a test or because it is a compulsory part of the curriculum. In an esl classroom, students are likely to have a higher intrinsic motivation because english is relevant to their daily lives. By being in the target language community, they
have more opportunity to use english and see immediate results from using it. The typical students in my esl classes wanted to learn english for personal reasons, such as to communicate with a variety of people from other countries, or they wanted to learn the language for professional reasons, perhaps to get a better job. However we are talking about all the differences between esl and efl, but for us, the difference between the terms used is not as important as the difference that teachers make in the classroom, regardless of whether they are esl or efl. The teachers’ vision and dedication are the real difference. And throughout this course, we had time to face the learner side and consider more of students’ view. We had
little struggle with some units but still we got through it. We would like to say thank to our tutor Peter, and we will bring those useful information and comments we learned. Thank you. Ilyoung Kim and Hyunah Kim
