Decent content, reasonable price, but some disappointing components to their online interface (lack of information on progress and assignments still left to complete).

My very first international certificate and 100% content. Have nothing to complain about, nor object to. My rating?
- a friendly approach and communication
- great quizzes and precise questions regarding the topics, explanations provided
- amazing writing tasks to be completed, including tutor comments for your future improvement
- a load of beneficial content for anyone willing to teach or being a teacher already

Okay. Wish they had a book, but everybody is different. Some of the grammar is incorrect and spelling also - but overall okay.

Material was good, instruction through but very cut and dry, not much support from Tutors which was worked into course price. Would not take another class with them.

It is a worthwhile training and very excellent. I give kudos to my trainer - Cheryl for prompt responses. I appreciate Bridge for motivating and helping me achieve this Basic Certificate. I decided to give a trial and quit, but now, I discovered there is still more to learn and I felt persuaded to move on. Furthermore, I like the way both assignment and quiz questions were set; they create curiosity that prompts you to study more. Besides, you made the task so easy to achieve. I say thank you to Bridge.

I really appreciate the freedom to organize your own time and speed up as much as you want! The assignments are not easy but very practical and efficient. Personally, I'm very satisfied with the gear I came out with!

I am glad I took this course. As a full time teacher, it took me the full three months to complete the course, and I am glad that the grammar advisor has an extra few months.
The customer support was phenomenal. They were willing to share special promotions and find the course that is just right for you.

I learned a lot while getting my TEFL certificate. I consider it was a well invested money, and look forward to job opportunities abroad as an English teacher.

I did trainings to teach ESL online, two courses, the basic and the advanced. I was satisfied with the basic/intro course, but disappointed in the advanced. There are so few videos, one, maybe two at most. And one short voice clip. I would think they'd at least have videos of the basics, like 'How to teach the To Be verb.' I was very thankful for youtube, I used it a ton...And one of the things they teach you is important for teaching online is to have a blog, but no blog for us- it would help to be able to ask each other questions, and share- no interaction with other students...There were a number of typos on the website (former proofreader here- but really, for an english class- they should have it proofread...)Also there was at least one quiz answer I was marked wrong for, that when I asked my tutor to show me where that info was, they had to concede that it was not in the course and give me the point. ( I suspected there were others like that that I hadn't bothered checking on.) There were issues with uploading on the website, I thought it would be more together. In the advanced course, until the last two comprehensive projects due at the end, all the assignments are quizzes which are automatically graded by the website...Very little interaction with your tutor, you can ask questions by email, which I did, it takes quite a bit of time to wait for answers, they should have office hours...I was surprised at the amount of material you needed to know for the final project that there were no videos for, and very little info, or links given (like zero, i believe.) For example, if you choose to do a lesson plan for kids for your final project, it, of course, needs to be developmentally appropriate - I would think they would at least have links with some guidelines; but no... I suppose I have high standards, my BA is from UCB...I found the advanced course disappointingly bare bones ...

Engaging and complete. I enjoyed the reading material, it was well explained and the examples were clear. The essays were the best part: the proposed scenarios were challenging and writing them was fun!

I did the Basic Certificate in TEFL which was a good introduction to the role of the English language teacher and the role of the learner. The video clips, quizzes and assignments encouraged engagement with the materials.
Online learning of this kind was a new experience for me and this was a smooth and enjoyable introduction.
I received personal feedback on my assignments and the staff responded promptly and helpfully to my queries and comments.
I don't know how it compares to other offerings, but it seems pretty fair value and the materials are good quality.

This course was amazing, I learned a lot of things that I previously wasn't aware of, and I am proud by the fact that even if some art were hard, in my personal opinion, I was able to handle them decently. I recommend this course to everyone as it opens to a lot of great opportunity for your future.

This course is great for ESL teachers. The materials help teachers to plan interesting lessons that will motivate children of different levels. The course is offered in organized and interesting ways with videos, text and downloadable articles/files. The discussion groups with the students was also very beneficial. I found that some of the teachers had some really great ideas and it was good to learn from each other.

Recommend Bridge Education Group's BridgeTEFL program. Having completed the 40-hour basic course, it cover the essentials and more, including offering two-way feedback between student and course advisor, both quizzes and written submissions, and videos.

There was really no feedback from the instructor. That would have been valuable.

Review by Matsoblokos2 months ago
I had confidence I would succeed in the course because the layout of information was clear, direct and insightful. I also loved how helpful and efficient the staff behind BridgeTELF are. They always got back to me and made sure any issues I had were quickly resolved.
I learnt a lot about how to be a teacher and how to be good at it. My friends have done other TELF courses through other agencies, none were this thorough. Definitely worth it.
Thank you for amazing courses and guidance BridgeTEFL!
