The 120-Hour Master Certificate is our most popular TEFL course. It is designed for both novice and experienced teachers who desire to be up to date on best practice in English language teaching. In addition to theory, practical EFL techniques and methodology are covered to give teachers hands-on tools they can implement immediately in to the classroom. This program also includes special modules on teaching English grammar, teaching English to young learners, and teaching business English. Trainees receive a subscription to a database of over 2,000 pre-made lesson plans, flashcards, and teaching videos.
The Bridge 120-hour Master Certificate in TEFL has also been evaluated by the prestigious American Council on Education (ACE) and has been recommended for 6 under graduate-level university credits.
