A couple of acronyms that you are likely to come across as an English teacher are IELTS and TOEFL. IELTS stands for International English Language Testing System and is a United Kingdom and Commonwealth based test of English language skills. TOEFL stands for Test of English as a Foreign Language and is a U.S. based English language skills test.
