TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. Simply put, this is usually used to talk about teaching English to people who live in a non-English speaking country and who want to learn English for business or to take an exam, etc.
It is pretty much equivalent to TESOL and TESL.
For more, see TEFL - Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

At ICAL we’re open to suggestions. If you think that you – or your organization – would benefit from a scholarship to take our TEFL course and that afterwards the community where you work would benefit then do get in touch!
In the past we’ve given scholarships to all sorts of charities and schools in under privileged areas.
See also our page on charitable donations.
How Much are the Scholarships Worth?
The amount of our scholarships varies and are offered according to circumstances and situation. They begin at 15% discount but we look at who you are and how the community will benefit from your TEFL training.
