Difference between EFL and ESL

Difference between EFL and ESL


English as a Foreign Language (EFL)

“When English is taught as a school subject or on an adult level solely for the purpose of giving the student a foreign language competence which he may use in one of several ways, then it is taught as a foreign language”.


English as a Second Language (ESL)

English becomes a second language when it is a language of instruction in Schools and colleges and is used as “a lingua franca between speakers of widely diverse languages, as in India”.

                                                                                 (Defined by Albert H. Marckwardt)
