The online course provided me with the skills and knowledge I’d almost forgotten from being in a place teaching where you’re not always allowed to use these skills when teaching.But by taking the course,it certainly refreshed my memory to alot of things I hadn’t put into practice in a long time.If you’re a teacher and planning to return to the classroom,this would be a great place to start,provided you haven’t taught in quite some time.It’ll provide you with all you need,not just for teaching in a foreign country ,but certainly for any classroom you enter,it’ll definitely prepare you for things you will encounter in the classroom,rather foreign or domestic.I recommend this course to both newcomers and as well as thoses who’ve been teaching but for some reason or another wants to go back into the profession of teaching.

Good luck and enjoy the course,Mr.Kenyatta,peace!

I am a TEFL teacher in South Korea. Even though I only teach high school English courses, I wanted to take my teaching to the next level. I enrolled in the 100 hour program. It helped me so much. Thanks to the program, I now have more ideas for games and activities, and I have actually been able to make classes more interesting and interactive for the students! I highly recommend this program for ANY TEFL teacher who wants to take their teaching to the next level.

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!

This is a very good program, though I took the 120 online program and did not have any practice teaching. My biggest problem is that since I finished the program in October 2009 I have been unable to find a job. I am 52 and nothing was ever mentioned that age would be a handicap. Their job placement service has not been any help. If you already have experience teaching, this is a good way to become certified.

I was already working as an English teacher when I began this course, and really felt like I was doing pretty well. However, after just a few lessons, I began to see my shortcomings – especially with talking too much! Anyway, I also learned I am not necessarily an expert in many aspects of the language – and most importantly – learned how to improve. As far as the course itself, timewise, I was also studying full time, and the class was flexible enough that I never had any problems. Also, my instructor’s feedback was thoughtful and practical. All in all, this was a worthwhile use of time by a guy who usually doesn’t have much of it.

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.

I was actually in law school while I was taking the online TEFL course, so needless to say I already had a lot on my plate. However, the process was made very simple, and I was able to work out a personal TEFL work schedule, which seemed to always be compatible with my online instructor; who normally gave me feedback within twenty-four hours. Because of this easily accessible course online, I was able to finish within a few months, while in law school, and locate a job (before I even completed the course) with the help my job coordinator. Within in weeks of me starting my course, I had been placed in a position in Peru.

Overall, the process is simple, and it is well worth getting a job coordinator, unless you already have a position lined up.

I am very appreciative of the experience that I had in Peru, which was made possible by the TEFL online course.

Thanks!

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.
