After completing the 120 hour TEFL certificate course, I thought it would be helpful to take the specialized certificate course on teaching online. I have a bachelor’s, master’s, two law degrees and a teacher’s certificate and this was hands down the worst class I have ever taken. It was just a rehash of the materials in the 120 hour class and a poor one at that. The materials, assignments and tests did absolutely nothing to prepare me to teach online. It is a complete waste of time and money. Do not take this course.

I was facinitated at first of how they represent the courses they have and their high google ranking. However, after trying 5 times to contact them, they’ve never answered my questions. I live outside the US and I had to contact them. imagine that they charge you 75$ apart from the course fee, just to mail you your certificate, or they would just send you a PDF copy! which is really ridiculous!

They will never answer any question you ask them online. The course is over-priced and the sample video is like from 19th century.

Even the sample certificate screen-shot is not clear. I didn’t like the whole thing.

I completed the 120 hour TEFL course in about 6 months, while teaching part time in China. It really helped me become a better teacher very quick. I had no experiance teaching when I arrived in China in February 2010. With the help of this course I was able to make my classes run smoother, and with more control. I found that planning and execution is critical in being a good teacher. I stepped into my first classroom with no idea how to manage the kids or present a quality lesson. Well, it was just teaching Pre-Kindergarten abc’s, but that experiance, and the lessons in the Bridge TEFL course have accelerated me to a much higher level of teacher. Now I am teaching 3 to 12 year olds, plus some adults. I can’t say enough about the Bridge course, and Grammar advisor. Thanks A Bunch! Brian

I had signed up for a Blended course, 1/2 online and half on-site at the Rio De Janeiro facility. The online portion was extremely well put together and very much a challenge. T

The feedback/communication from the main office, however, was very poor and a bit disrespectful. After I made my initial deposit of $375 to begin the online portion, two weeks later I was told I needed to make the full payment plus a $95 RUSH fee or I would be dropped from the class. I made several attempts to communicate to ask for a week extension, emailing and leaving VM’s, but was promptly dropped from the course and locked out of my Online Training course. I also lost my $375 deposit.

Very disappointing, however I must compliment my Online Tutor on her tremendous help!

The Accelerated TEFL course is definitely rigorous, but in the end is a very helpful way to introduce yourself to the world of TEFL. The online portion is very thorough, and the 2 weeks of in-class instruction will prepare you for your first TEFL job abroad. I was certified in April and have been teaching in Chile for the past 4 months. Bridge’s course definitely prepared me for the experience.

I got the CELTA certification in Denver, Colorado. The course was difficult and very rewarding. The best aspect of the course for me was the practice teaching. I received much feedback on my planning and presentation style. The feedback was both encouraging and difficult. The CELTA course gave me the confidence I needed in applying to schools. Additionally, the certification has been rewarded with a monthly bonus at my current place of employment.

The Bridge-TEFL course I took in Denver was intensely consuming and opening. My understanding of the English language as a living entity around the world was formed there and since I have completed the course my own study of languages has improved using the techniques studied in the course: I am living in Sweden with my new baby and the language is coming very smoothly and quickly, from the memorization of words and rules, to the difficult pronunciation of 18 different vowel sounds. And even though I have not been looking for a job yet, I still receive notices and job opportunties from the great staff and support network of Bridge-TEFL.
