Incredible Program!

The Online 120-Hour Master Certificate program is fantastic. Prior to registering for the course, I scoured internet forums looking for online TEFL/TESOL certificate-program recommendations. After weeks of sifting through review after review, I decided to choose Bridge TEFL.

Can I just say, WOW?! I am 100% glad that I chose Bridge TEFL! The course is very in-depth and thorough. My tutor gives excellent assignment feedback, and is very responsive. The modules are beyond informative and the assignments will challenge you to think like a real TEFL/TESOL instructor.

High quality education, assignements, and support.

The combination of high quality education, enjoyably interactive assignments, and knowledgeable support staff makes my very thankful I selected BridgeTEFL for my online certificate.

I am particularly pleased with the lessons themselves. I wasn't exactly sure what I was getting myself into, but the pacing of the material is perfect. The basic certification, the first level into it, eased me in nicely. Wrapping up the educator certificate now, the material is more difficult for sure, but I am learning even more than I expected to.

I am also quite impressed with my assigned tutor. I don't often need much in the way of additional assistance, but the ease with which I am able to reach out to get that help has made this course that much more comfortable to work on.
I highly recommend BridgeTEFL!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Pace yourself. The bigger certificates take a lot of time, and three months to complete 100 or 120 hours might seem like plenty, but if you give yourself too much time away from it, it could lead to a lot of catching up.

Great

Learning with Bridge was just fantastic. Detailed course, lots of assignments with superb tutor assistance. The 120 master course was what I studied. In fact I was overwhelmed with their assignments from module 7-13. These assignments really made me do lots of research since I wanted an excellent score for my assignments. I gained lots of new ideas from every step of the studies. My tutor was just amazing. She assisted me in every aspect of the assignment by adding comment and giving feedbacks. The 40 hour grammar advisor course was just great. Learned lots of things in addition to what I already knew. More value to my grammar now. The 60 hour educator course was also wonderful.
Thanks to my tutor Cheryl and thanks to Bridge TEFL for a good and professional work done.

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
Their quick tutor response on all assignments was just amazing

Excellent course

I am currently around halfway through this course (Basic + Educator + Young + Business packages), and so far, it's been superb. The lessons are very clear and well-structured, with great tests and assignments. Perhaps the greatest quality is their feedback system, however. After having tried various other online courses, I have to say these guys are by far the best on feedback. After a maximum of one business day after hand-in, I get long and detailed, yet very clear, helpful feedback. Every. Single. Time. I am not sure how well the pricing of this course compares to others, however, I have to say I am very pleased with this one. I am actually looking forward to the rest of the lessons, and will be a bit sad when it's over!

One small note: the score given for "helping to find a job" should be ignored, as I already have a job offer, and only do this course as part of a program package. Therefore, job-finding is irrelevant in this case.

TEFL master certificate (120 hours)

I was happily surprised with how well this course was run - from beginning to end, I felt that I was getting valued information and fair and honest feedback. I was a little surprised at how intense it was, but felt that for the price I paid to take the course, the information covered went above and beyond, making it 100 percent worth it. I feel more comfortable and confident in the idea of becoming a teaching English as a foreign language teacher and all that this course did to prepare me for the next chapter of my life.

What would you improve about this program?
The only thing I was disappointed in was having to pay to get a hard copy of my certificate. I don't think that is fair and a student who completed the course should either get it for free or at a discounted rate.

TEFL

I took the 150 hour course, it was a great experience and taught me a lot. The Teacher was awesome and she went well above and beyond to help guide me and make me a better teacher myself. I had a previous TESOL degree but wanted to add this to my CV. I am also taking the Business English course and the Grammar course to round out my experience. I will be looking to teach overseas this fall, just not sure where I will end up yet

Great course

I attended this course not knowing what to expect but it is well worth the money and time. I learned so much that sometimes I was on overload. If you are looking to learn, become a better teacher, and/or trying to find a new career.

Make a positive and life-changing impact on the lives of others. Teach abroad and make a difference. Don’t hesitate to start here! This is where the adventure begins and you make the right choice to start on the right foot.

What would you improve about this program?
By extending or allowing a week of introduction

120 Master TEFL Certificate

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 .

What would you improve about this program?
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

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).

What would you improve about this program?
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

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.
