Teach with Bridge For Pleasure Free Scheme
Bridge For Pleasure Teaching Scheme

This scheme was developed for teaching duplicate bridge face to face in a class/bridge room.
However, it is being adapted for use online.

The courses start from bridge for complete beginners right through to learning complex bidding methods and card play.

The materials are free to use, largely in PDF documents available for download here.

There are six courses of ten lessons.

It's particularly aimed at volunteer bridge teachers, perhaps not the strongest players, teaching small groups.
But anyone is welcome to use it. 

Bridge 1 Getting Started, Bridge 2 Building Your Skills and Bridge 3 Taking Acol Further are all loaded.

Advanced Lessons are being updated, checked, used and loaded.
