120 Master TEFL Certificate

10/10

Right now I am doing the 120 Master TEFL Certificate . I am an English trainer and I love teaching English . I teach English to professionals in Europe . I always wanted to register for a similar course and I have to say that I am very happy and satisfied . The feedback , advice , examples , notes , videos are what teachers need to improve their teaching skills .

My teachers are very motivating , attentive , devoted , they correct my exercises fast and their comments are easy to understand and they are always there to help and advise me . I would recommend this great course to my colleagues , relatives and friends .

How can this program be improved?

It is a great course .Perhaps when learners watch the videos it will be great to have the transcript below the video as some people may have some problems to hear with their headsets or laptops/computers.

It is a great course and I will consider other courses in the near future.

Educators Certificate - helpful and timely

8/10

I completed the 60-hour TEFL Educators Certificate in Spring 2017 while my wife attended the CELTA intensive course. I found it helpful that we were often studying the same concepts and could compare what we learned. I like the pace of the course, the fair homework assignnments, and variety of course activities (video lessons, readings, quizzes, and writing/developing lesson plans for grading). The one thing that was lacking was actual live teaching experience, which of course you don't get in an online learning environment (usually).

How can this program be improved?

Provide a way to do a practice teaching session online that could be viewed/graded by the grader (using SKYPE or other live video calling tool).

Assistant Professor

9/10

I did not know how much additional training and professional development in TEFL/TESOL I needed until I started taking the BridgeTEFL graduate level course. It was an exceptional experience that helped me not only revamp my skills in English language teaching but also equipped me with new theories and practices on the subject. You can hardly go through this program and come out untransformed, professionally. As a Ph.D. holder and ESL instructor, I went into this program with the intention of refreshing my skills and knowledge and has never regretted ever since.

IDELT Online

10/10

I hated online classes when I was an undergraduate student, and I was really taking a chance by taking the fully online IDELT course. It well exceeded my expectations! My teacher, Ann Leonard was very responsive and the peer support forum was a very useful tool. The two major assignments were especially practical and helpful in applying my learning; I only wish there had been another 1-2 projects. This course was extremely convenient and well worth my time!

How can this program be improved?

I think the price of the program (I could be wrong) is based on the ability to opt into the graduate credits, which I chose not to do. However, this program was great for my lifestyle and schedule so the convenience and course content paid for itself. Bridge was also particularly helpful in walking me through the MyCAA scholarship requirements, so all I had to do was pay $50 for my textbook. Only thing I might add is another 1-2 projects, since there were only two in addition to a weekly quiz.

Loved it!

10/10

I did the 60 our educator course and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was more challenging than I thought but I got great support from the staff. The interface is excellent and Really facilitates knowledge acquisition. I’m not sure exactly how I will use this professionally but I know that I am well-equipped to make a post retirement choices for part-time work in Latin America. I don’t think you can go wrong with bridge TEFL.

How can this program be improved?

It’s fine as is.
