Santiago de Chile (PRWEB) October 26, 2010
BridgeTEFL has recently established its first Authorized Training Center (ATC) in Santiago de Chile in partnership with the Universidad Finis Terrae. UFT has been approved to offer the International Diploma for English Language Teaching (Bridge IDELT) for non-native speaking English teachers. This is the first time that an internationally recognized certification for Teaching English as a Foreign Language has been available to Chilean EFL teachers for university credit.
UFT launched the first Bridge IDELT course for 20 teachers from the Metropolitan Region of Chile. It is offered as a post-graduate diploma and is held part-time in the evenings. The course is comprehensive, covering all of the key aspects of effective English language teaching. It also provides practice teaching sessions with English-language learners, so that teachers can apply what they are learning to real-life classroom situations.
