Malta Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language
MATEFL is an organisation run by and for teachers of English as a Foreign Language. It is dedicated to the professional development of its members, the majority of whom are employed in Malta’s 49 EFL schools, by facilitating the sharing and exchanging of ideas and keeping abreast of new developments in the EFL world. The Association runs a minimum of three seminar/workshops a year for its members. The majority of these are led by members themselves in a spirit of sharing the best of TEFL practice in Malta. Once or twice a year a well-known international practitioner/author is brought over to Malta to lead a workshop for MATEFL. The Association also runs its own newsletter which discusses teaching issues and provides a wealth of practical teaching ideas.
