What TEFL Courses Did WE Take?

Have you ever found yourself wondering what type of TEFL courses the employees at Bridge took and what they thought of them? Now is your chance to find out! I wrote a quick “MadLibs” style interview to a few of my TEFL-certified colleagues and asked them to fill in the blanks. Here are the results!

Lisa Rooney – BridgeTEFL Director 

“The TEFL course I took was onsite and took me four weeks to complete. I chose this course out of all of the TEFL courses because I knew it would lead to a job teaching English in Chile. It helped me most in the classroom when I needed ideas for controlled practice of grammatical structures.  I would say these TEFL courses are perfect for anyone who is interested in truly preparing themselves to be an effective teacher of English as a foreign language.”

Jennifer Collis – BridgeTEFL Programs Advisor

“The TEFL course I took was onsite and took me 10 weeks to complete. I chose this course out of all of the TEFL courses because I wanted to teach English in Costa Rica, and I had never taught before. It helped me most in the classroom when I needed lesson ideas or creative activities, or when I had to explain a tricky grammar point.  I would say these TEFL courses are perfect for anyone who is interested in learning not only the theoretical concepts of teaching, but  the real skills you need every day to run a smooth and productive class!”

Joshua Yardley – IDELT Trainer

“The TEFL certification course I took was onsite (and out of this world!) and took me four (very fast) weeks to complete. I chose this course out of all of the TEFL courses because being a teacher-in-training helped me become a better teacher trainer. It helped me most in the classroom when determining how much homework to assign. I would say these TEFL courses are perfect for anyone who is interested in a challenge.”
