• Bridge students can be found in every corner of the globe, and they get certified with Bridge to meet a variety of professional goals. Some are just starting their careers and need TEFL training and certification to qualify for jobs, and others are already experienced teachers, building on their current credentials with our professional development options.

    Hear what some of our international course graduates have to say about their experience in the course, or how the TEFL training benefited them as a teacher in their home country or abroad.

“The course introduced teaching techniques and methods that were new to me. The course got progressively more challenging which kept me engaged and focused.”

Michelle, from Jamaica
IDELTOnline Graduate/Teacher in Qatar

“This course was more useful than I thought and changed my opinion about online courses. Useful materials were combined with an easily available tutor, Amy, whose comments were truly helpful. Her detailed comments on my assignments helped me in correcting my wrong assumptions and cleared my idea about what I had learned. I think tutors are one of the main strength of this course.”

Maryam, from Iran

“I loved this program! It was easy to follow, it explained a lot of things you actually encounter while teaching people who are not English native speakers. I found it VERY helpful even having been teaching for 7 years already!”
