I see few Hubbers teaching English (ESL) in the far east. Have you taught in any other country?
Where did you have the best experience?
Most hubbers probably teach ESL in the U.S., Canada, and Great Britian where English is the national dominant language. If a person were learning English in Australia or New Zealand they would be learning ESL. A case can also be made that if someone is learning English in the Philippines, they are learning ESL. If a hubber is in the Far East he will be teaching EFL (English as a Foreign Language) in countries such as Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and China where English is not like in the U.S. the dominant language in society. I taught EFL in Taiwan in the 70s and probably had my best experiences there. I am presently teaching EFL in Thailand.
Thanks for the clarification, always wondered why one was ESL, and the other EFL.
I've been told that ESL is the preferred term nowadays as there is a stigma attached to the word 'foreign' (which is represented in EFL). All for political correctness (gone mad?!)
They are both used interchangeably these days.
I've taught in Indonesia (Bali), Italy & Spain - the best place for me was Spain as Italy has very little pay with expensive living costs and in Bali unprofessionalism & corruption are so rife that it makes it quite stressful working here.
Hope that helps.

I would like to work abroad teaching English. But the number of options of courses to take to get a TEFL qualification seems a bit confusing. Is it better applying for the most expensive or is that not necessary?
