Glossary of TEFL Acronyms

Acronym: EFL


EFL - English as a Foreign Language: The term EFL has its fans and detractors in various countries. Most commonly, it's used to describe English language learning in countries where English is not an official first language. Yet is English truly foreign in countries where it is commonly used in business or the marketplace? Where it is the language of the school system? Some too see the controversy within the politics of power.
