Syllabus vs Curriculum

Syllabus: It answer the question of what to teach.
Curriculum:

Develop awareness of what we are doing and what is our job.

ESL: English as a second language
EFL: English as a foreign language
TESOL: Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages

Teaching English in Turkey vs teaching English in Nigeria, is it the same thing? Absolutely not, English is an official language in Nigeria but in Turkey it is not.

These separations do not validate in our time, for this reason TESOL has been founded in USA.

In Europe, some people say that Teaching Additional Language to Speakers of Other Languages has been founded.

We are multilingual people, in that sense terms like ESL, EFL are not valid in our time now.

ESP: English for Specific Purposes, English for certain businesses for example.
EAP: English for Academic Purposes such as English Language Teaching major in Istanbul University.
ELF: English as Lingua Franca, We teach English to our students to enable them to talk to anyone.
ELFA: English as an Academic Lingua Franca, such as us speaking in English in our classes due to foreign students in our classes.
WE: World Englishes, there is no one English in the world, such as Singlish, Hong Kong English.
EIL: English as an International Language, some people are suspicious of ELF as if it has got its unique language. So they stand with this.

Commodification of English, English as a Commodity: Monetization of English, Prosperity through English

ELT is different from Teaching German or Russian, as it has much many speakers than the other languages.
