With over 20 years of experience training students and teachers worldwide, BridgeTEFL is an established leader in the language training industry. Our staff, programs, facilities and network of global contacts are top-notch because language training is our business—and has been for over two decades.

* An Accredited Institution:  Bridge-Linguatec has been accredited and our TEFLOnline and BridgeTEFL programs approved by ACCET (Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training), an independent agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. This means that our training center and our programs have met the high quality standards as required by ACCET.

* Convenience, Affordability & Quality:  Online TEFL courses are known for their convenience and affordability—but what about quality? To create TEFLOnline, we took the core information from our world-class on-site TEFL programs and adapted it to a user-friendly online format.

We even added a series of video tutorials to help you see what you're learning in action. The result is a teacher preparation program that is convenient, affordable, easy-to-follow—and that represents the highest level of online teacher training available.
