    For training, there are schools that work with MEF for the training and schools that prefer to do their own training and also some schools that do not do much training.

    MEF has a program for training on site, but we also have TEFL training designed to get the teacher ready to teach their first lesson. We also have other support, videos and explanations. When job positions are offered, we ask the school to explain what the teacher can expect for training and then the teacher is able to take the TEFL training or other support in order to gain confidence if needed.

    Although schools also need teachers often for all age categories, the training MEF provides is kindergarten specific.

    MEF teaches the core training and teachers are expected to also learn from, and adjust what they teach, depending on the kindergarten’s preferences.

    The MEF system consists of mainly vocabulary flashcards, songs and dances, games and races, and conversational phrases and goals.

    Training is broken up into:

    • Theory, understanding cultural points, the system and what to expect.
    • Watching videos and live teaching examples. Getting teachers up in front of the class for getting the feel of the lessons.
    • Getting teachers together with current teachers, and understanding what special requests and needs each kindergarten may have.

    Many teachers start without prior experience controlling a kindergarten class, but after a number of classes teachers are usually always able to adapt, get comfortable and enjoy their lessons.
