Headquartered in Denver, Colorado since 2000, BridgeTEFL is an established leader in the English language training industry.  With over 30 years training students and teachers worldwide, our teacher training division has its roots in English language education.

Bridge Education Group got its start with English language centers in Brazil, Chile, and Argentina.  At our language centers, we saw firsthand the need for most robust training for teachers, so we developed a state-of-the-art TEFL/TESOL certification program, called the International Diploma in English Language Teaching. This program was one of the first to utilize a communicative approach to learning, as well as cutting-edge technology.

Building on the success of our onsite courses, we continued to embrace technology as early inventors of online training. Our recently updated courses certify over 3,000 teachers per year on an innovative, interactive e-learning platform.

Whether you're looking for an adventure abroad, or you're a career English teacher in your home country, we are here to help. BridgeTEFL graduates will receive support from top-notch trainers, an accredited certificate, access to a global job network, and the confidence to enter the classroom as a fully-prepared English teacher.

Our goal at BridgeTEFL is to provide high quality, accessible training and professional development for the global language teacher.  Unlike many websites and travel companies offering TEFL certificates, we are an accredited educational institution with the U.S. Department of Education.  Our staff, programs, facilities and network of global contacts are a great way to advance your TEFL career because language training is our business - and has been for over three decades.
