TEFL is an acronym for Teaching English as a Foreign Language, while TESOL stands for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Language.
The abbreviations "TEFL" and "TESOL" are often used to describe both the occupation of teaching English and the certification that qualifies one to teach English.
TEFL is primarily used to refer to teaching English in countries where English is not the first language. For example, a teacher from the US teaching English in Korea to Korean students or a teacher from Australia teaching English in China.
TESOL is geared towards teaching non-native speakers living in English speaking countries who wish to learn English. For example, a teacher from Canada teaching English to a group of Brazilian students in Canada or a teacher in the UK teaching a group of Chinese students.
For all practical purposes, when it comes to teaching abroad, both TEFL and TESOL hold similar job profiles. The only difference is the learners (kind of people) one has to teach. Thus both these terminologies are often used interchangeably.
CELTA stands for Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, formerly known as the "Certificate of English Teaching to Adults" and CertTESOL stands for Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages are distinct "brands" of TEFL qualifications by Cambridge University and Trinity College, London, respectively.
