We have successfully run EBU Year One and Year Two courses over the last two or three years. The format is blocks of ten 2 hour lessons over 30 weeks for each year. The course follows the curriculum laid out by English Bridge Union. From a teacher's point of view even we pick up lots of helpful tips each time we repeat the lessons to reinforce our bridge knowledge. We find our bridge improves. It is a learning process for all!
Currently, April 2014, we are not running any Year One or Year Two lessons but would consider setting up a new course given the right level of demand.
However we are looking to include in the club calendar supported bridge lessons on the third Friday of the month. The other Fridays will be duplicate pairs or teams at £3 table money. For the supported bridge sessions the material to be used is supplied by the EBU to club teachers who are members of the English Bridge Union Teachers Association. Supported play is a new venture for us and we will have to see how well the sessions go. Past experience shows that EBU course material is excellent.
The cost of each supported bridge lesson is £6; unlike previous courses there is no need for "students" to enrol for the usual block of ten lessons. However when running this supported bridge we would like to have a good idea of attendance beforehand to enable us to complete the preparation work needed in running the sessions.
Bridge is a very social activity and your teachers (Ross and Mo) run the course actively encouraging and promoting the game, plus we always give individual help and advice when needed and we make sure that it is fun! We are both EBU trained and use professional teaching methods.
