Glossary of TEFL Acronyms

Acronym: L2


L2 - Second Language; Foreign Language: The language a person knows, is learning or is acquiring in addition to their native language (L1). This is a key term if you need to cut down the word count in your writing; "L2 classrooms" is 37 characters shorter than "second language and/or foreign language classrooms". Also see SLA and ESL for additional information.
