Abstract
The TEFL profession affects over a billion people worldwide with Asia being the focus. Unlike other professional areas of study, TEFL does not have a controlling body. L2 teaching and learning is based on the premise that anyone can teach and publish anything and carry neither responsibility nor legal liability. The author argues that given the EFL profession’s responsibility, legal and moral, it must introduce regulation, rules, and laws.
