What is the difference between TOEFL & IELTS?
IELTS (International English Language Testing System) and TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) are two of the most widely-accepted tests that evaluate four basic skills of Reading Listening, Speaking and Writing to certify your English proficiency. They both prepare students to pursue their academic goals in universities and higher education institutions globally, where English is the medium of instruction. The main differences between IELTS and TOEFL are as follows: TOEFL exam questions are almost entirely multiple choice, whereas IELTS requires you to respond to a range of different question types such as short answer, gap-filling and short essay tasks. The IELTS is significantly shorter than the TOEFL exam, taking approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes versus four hours in IELTS.
TESOL? TEFL? TESL? TEAL? ELT? TESL? What’s the difference?
They are essentially all the same thing. They are terms used to describe the teaching of the English
language to those that do not speak the language. The main difference is the
country where the teaching takes place. TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of
Other Languages) and TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) are standard
terms for English language teaching in non-English speaking countries. TESL
(Teaching English as a Second Language) and TEAL (Teaching English as an
Additional Language) are normally related to English teaching among immigrant
and refugee communities in English speaking countries.
The acronyms TEFL and TESL are more frequently used in Europe. The acronyms TESOL and TEAL are more commonly used in North America.

Just as professionals in medicine, architecture, and law have opportunities to learn through examining case studies, learning best practices, and participating in internships, exemplary teacher-preparation programs allow teacher candidates the time to apply their learning of theory in the context of teaching in a real classroom.
