From the first day of your course, you will be assigned a personal tutor who will be with you throughout your training. Your tutor will provide feedback on your written assignments and as well as answer any questions you have along the way.

FAQs

You will have 3 months from the day you enroll in your Specialized Certificate to complete it. (Most students finish the course sooner – in four to six weeks.)

If you sign up Specialized Certificate along with one of our TEFL courses, we recommend you first complete your general TEFL course and then start your Specialized Certificate course. You will then have 3 months from the day you begin your Specialized Course to complete it.

If you don’t finish in time for any reason, you can purchase an extension to complete your Specialized Certificate course, either before it expires or for up to one year after expiration. Extensions cost $100 for an additional 3 months. Please note that once your course/extension has expired, you will no longer have access to the course.

To take Bridge Specialized Certificates, you must be at least 18 years old.

It is recommended that you are either already TEFL/TESOL certified, or enroll concurrently in a TEFL/TESOL course, such as the IDELTOnline to take a Specialized Certificate course.

If you are not a native English speaker, you will be expected to show proof of English fluency at a B1 level or higher, according to the Common European Framework, in order to take these courses. Your English level must be verified with the results of a recently taken English proficiency test (showing the equivalent to an IELTS test score of at least 5.0) or via an English proficiency test administered by Bridge.

Specialized Certificate courses can be taken on their own to complement general certification or teaching experience you already have. They may also be added on to your enrollment in any BridgeTEFL course.

If you add a Specialized Certificate to Bridge certification, your final certificate will reflect the total number of hours completed, with individual components listed. For example, if you added a Specialized Certificate in Teaching Young Learners (60 hours) to the IDELTOnline™ (150 hours), you would receive a 210-hour BridgeTEFL certificate. The two courses would be listed below the total hours.
