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.

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.參考資料： Myself. Went abroad at age 11. With 32 years experience speaking and writing English.
