  1. sorry before. just wanna complete your definition that TEFL means Teaching English as a foreign language so it's common use to learners who live in outside native English speaking country. TEFL is sometimes used in place of TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) or TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language).
