Bridge English claims to be a leader on their site in language learning and TEFL training. I am not sure about their services, but I can tell you where they are not a leader. Here you will find a few examples including screen shots.

As I was searching about the net for articles on how to write a resume for teaching abroad I came across two posts on "How to write a killer resume to teach abroad" in the Google search results. It looks pretty obvious to me that their work was a copy of the previous result with basically the same title. See for yourself.

A few years ago when I did a search for my site "eslinsider" or esl insider I found that a few other people were using the same name on their site. One of those sites was Bridge English or Bridge TEFL. They used the name in their ESL blog. They called it the Bridge ESL Insider Blog.

I wasn't very happy about it so I sent them a message and asked if they could change it. I didn't receive a reply. I even commented on some of their posts before and left a link back to my site. So I am sure they are aware. Those comments were deleted.

Is Bridge English/TEFL really a "leader" in language instruction and teacher training?

On their about page Bridge TEFL claims to be a "leader" in TEFL training. If they were really a "leader" wouldn't they come up with their own original name? The url of their blog is Naming their blog the ESL Insider Blog was an after thought. If it wasn't then why wouldn't the url be: /eslinsider-blog. That may be speculation on my part. But there is a way to see what their website looked like in the past using the WaybackMachine.

It looks like it was around the beginning of 2013 when they changed the name. All archived pages earlier than that show their blog without any specific name. Their blog was titled BridgeEnglish. They also named their newsletter the ESL Insider newsletter.

I have owned the url since April 2009. See the pic of my email. If you use theĀ WaybackMachine the earliest example of my site is found in 2010.
