    English as an additional language (EAL) refers to the use or study of English by speakers of other languages. EAL covers both ESL (English as a second language), and EFL (English as a foreign language).

    There are two basic forms of English as an additional language:

    (1) EFL - English to use in a non-English-speaking region (e.g. by international business people) and,

    (2) ESL - English to use in an English-speaking region (e.g. by refugees and immigrants), or ESOL, or ESD.

    (1) English as a Foreign Language (EFL) refers the use of English in a non-English-speaking region (e.g. by international business people). Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) is the teaching of English as a foreign language.

    (2) In North America , English as a Second Language (ESL) refers to the use of English in an English-speaking region, (e.g. by refugees and immigrants). TESL is the teaching of English as a second language.

    In Britain , this is called English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) in recognition of the fact that many of the learners already speak more than one language. Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is a common abbreviation for the teaching aspect. The term TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages) is widely used to include both TEFL and TESL. In British usage, this is also called ELT (English language teaching).

    Particularly in Canada and Australia , the term ESD (English as a second dialect) is used alongside ESL. ESD usually refers to English programs for First Nations people.

    For this question, I have already addressed above.

    EAL includes ESL and EFL.

    Really! That means Taiwan is going to be an English speaking country.

    2008-10-14 10:31:34 補充:

    ESL is English taught as a Second Language in an English Speaking Country. By listing English as your formal language will not let your country automatically become an English speaking country. ESL is for people whose primary language is not English in an English speaking country.

    根據某人給的不知可不可靠的消息:

    英文在台灣即將是ESL而非EFL!

    2008-10-14 08:12:53 補充:

    對了!

    我不知ESL是否一定只能狹獈地指英語系國家。

    我所指的ESL,

    是官方文件中英文將會是必要文件,

    至於政府開會時會不會也把英文列為台灣官方語言我就不知了!
