Je ziet al snel door de bomen het bos niet meer, maar vaak worden met verschillende afkortingen hetzelfde bedoeld. Het verschil zit hem vaak in het land dat de afkorting gebruikt en het 'soort' Engels dat er aangeleerd wordt.

See the HMRC's ruling on this here. - Thanks to Sue-Lyon Jones for the update (@esolcourses on Twitter) via the EL Gazette's twitter feed. I hope to follow up on this ruling, unscramble what it means in English, and work out its implications for EFL teachers, in a future EL Gazette article.EL Gazette has recently heard of two more cases of EFL teachers being engaged by language schools on a self-employed basis - completely illegal in the UK as we at EL Gazette understand it.
