Study abroad in the city named "#1 Place to Live in the US!"
A safe and affordable study-abroad destination, Denver buzzes with outdoor adventures, shopping, dining, and cultural and sports events. With world-class museums, tourist attractions and over 200 city and mountain parks, Denver offers plenty for students to take part in outside of class. Best of all, the convenient, modern public transportation system of Denver’s buses and light-rail trains puts it all within reach from our center’s downtown location.
Just outside Denver, the breathtaking Rocky Mountains tower against the horizon, beckoning visitors to try skiing, hiking, camping, and fishing. Add to this Denver’s 300+ days of sunshine per year, and its warm and welcoming people, and you’ve can see why this study abroad location was named #1 City by U.S. News and World Report.
About the Bridge Center
As trainees at Bridge, teachers attend classes at our newly remodeled, modern facilities in the heart of downtown Denver, in one of 11 fully-equipped classrooms. Both English and TEFL/TESOL class sizes are small, in order to enhance interaction and learning.
Our convenient center features a welcoming lobby, student lounge with computers, a common kitchen area, large outdoor patio with seating, and Wi-Fi throughout. After class, teachers can take advantage of activities designed to enhance learning outside the classroom, such as English conversation clubs and other social activities. The Bridge center is also within walking distance to shops and restaurants along the 16th Street Pedestrian Mall and other Denver attractions such as museums and sports arenas.
Housing Options During Bridge Customized Training Programs
In homestay accommodation, teachers will have their own bedroom and either a shared or private bathroom in the host’s home. Hosts provide breakfast and dinner, and they often enjoy spending time during meals chatting with guests, providing a great opportunity for English practice!
In order to be accepted into our program, local hosts are carefully screened and must meet Bridge’s stringent requirements.
Hotels and hostels are available within a short distance of the downtown Bridge training center. Hostels provide a more economical alternative to hotels, though unlike a private hotel room, standard service for hostels places you into a dorm room with 2 to 8 people.
