ESOL v EFL

Most of the year I teach adults in a college and what I teach is called ESOL. For four or five weeks every summer, when sensible, sane teachers are having their break from the rat race, I shift down to a summer school where I teach the teenage offspring of wealthy foreigners. At least I assume they are wealthy, these courses aren't cheap. And of course they aren't called ESOL, they are called EFL.
